updating graceful-fs module

When I also create a new foundation for apps I get this "(node:12748) fs: re-evaluating native module sources is not supported. If you are using the graceful-fs module, please update it to a more recent version." How do I update this module? I've tried multiple times, but it keeps giving me an error message.

Hi Noel,

You are more than likely getting this error because you're using NodeJS 6 which doesn't have great support for existing packages, you will need to downgrade to the previous version which has extremely good support for common packages.


To downgrade, simply uninstall your current NodeJS installation and install 4.4.6 LTS from the above link.

Hope that helps.

Hello Chris, is very important do downgrade or I can still using my NodeJs version? (other projects based on it). Thanks
