This afternoon I met up with Hannah Wolfe the lead dev on the Ghost.org project. I wanted to show her an Application (think plug-in) I’d written for Ghost. Imagine my embarrassment when I tried to build the project in Visual Studio and got some odd Vertx MODULE_NOT_FOUND error. I tried the obvious: “NPM Install” I even checked to ensure there wasn’t some kind of security issue stopping folder access… The fix was to update the Node tools for Visual Studio.

I have become accustomed to Visual Studio plug-in’s and SDK notifying me in the notification hub when new versions are available, so this one caught me out.

Moral of the story: Before you investigate odd behaviour in beta development tools, make sure you are running the latest version.
