"One or more errors occurred." error when creating node project

Sep 12, 2014 at 11:35 AM
Starting with a fresh install of VS2013+Update 3 on Windows 8.1.
File/New/Project/Blank Node.js Web Application (or any other node project)
Check "Create directory..." and uncheck "Add to source control"
Keep default names and location.
Get error dialog "One or more errors occurred."
Folders and files seem to be created properly, but if I open the .SLN file, no projects appear in Solution Explorer. If I open the project file I get the "One or more errors occurred" dialog again.
I ran VS with the /log option, but I couldn't find anything useful in the VS error log. And nothing in the Windows logs.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the Node tools, but same error.

Any idea where I should look for clues?

In my case, the problem was that I didn't have node installed (it was a new PC build). Suggest that the installed check for that

@gkirkpatrick

This should be addressed in our latest dev build. We have added some changes that should make it more obvious when you have errors due to node.js being missing.
