Error while installing PowerBI custom visuals

Hi everybody,


I'm having some issues installing PowerBI custom visuals.

What I've done so far:

- Installed node.js

- Ran the command npm install -g powerbi-visuals-tools in the PowerShell, which eventually fails

The errors say:

104 error Windows_NT 6.1.7601
105 error argv "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\nodejs\\\\node.exe" "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\nodejs\\node_modules\\npm\\bin\\npm-cli.js" "install" "ejs"
106 error node v0.12.2
107 error npm v2.7.4
108 error code ELIFECYCLE
109 error ejs@3.0.1 postinstall: `node ./postinstall.js`
109 error Exit status 1
110 error Failed at the ejs@3.0.1 postinstall script 'node ./postinstall.js'.
110 error This is most likely a problem with the ejs package,
110 error not with npm itself.
110 error Tell the author that this fails on your system:
110 error node ./postinstall.js
110 error You can get their info via:
110 error npm owner ls ejs
110 error There is likely additional logging output above.


That's above my knowledge and I can't find the answer to my problem anywhere... any idea??


Thank you,
