This is how I solved the issue on Windows 8.1

Go to your nodejs install (usually C:\Program Files\nodejs)

Right click node_modules folder and go to properties

Click the Security tab and advanced

At the top you will see “Owner: SYSTEM”. Click change.

Enter the user you want permissions for and click ok

Check the box at the bottom of the advanced settings “Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object” and click ok

Do whatever npm install/update you need.
