Cannot find express module

Error: Cannot find module ‘express’

Even with new Node App starter template.
Is something going on with the package manager? :slight_smile:
TY VM!

I haven’t been able to reproduce creating a new app myself. Let us know the project name and we’ll take a look. If your project is private, either make it public temporarily or DM me a join link so we can view the code. Thanks.
