Cannot install agentkeepalive

Hello. I am new at this…

When I run:
npm install agentkeepalive

It gives me:
Cannot find module agentkeepalive.

Google didn’t help. Can you help? What am I doing wrong?


Is that error from the install, rather than from trying to use agentkeepalive in code?

I was not able to reproduce and see quite a different error when I install a missing module. Could you copy-and-paste what you see?

Thanks, next question would have been for the log! I do not recognise the error, hopefully someone does.

I’m not having much success.
I am on a Windows PC. Do you know the relationship between the two node_modules directories:

(a) C:\Program Files\nodejs\node_modules\npm\node_modules
(b) C:\Users\info\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\npm\node_modules

I found that copying the agentkeepalive and bluebird directories from (a) to (b) did let me go further, but it still gets stuck. And the copied files disappear from (b).

I have tried reinstalling nodejs a few times.

Any ideas?
If not, I don’t know where to ask for help on this. Can you suggest a forum where I can ask?
