This is a consequence of joyent/node#8141, and is an issue with the Node installer for Windows. The workaround is to ensure that
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\npm exists and is writable with your normal user account.

@drmyersii went through what sounds like a lot of painful trial and error to come up with a working solution involving Windows long paths and some custom Vagrant configuration:
This is the commit that I implemented it in, but I'll go ahead and post the main snippet of code here:config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |v|v.customize ["sharedfolder", "add", :id, "--name", "www", "--hostpath", (("//?/" + File.dirname(__FILE__) + "/www").gsub("/","\\"))]endconfig.vm.provision :shell, inline: "mkdir /home/vagrant/www"config.vm.provision :shell, inline: "mount -t vboxsf -o uid=`id -u vagrant`,gid=`getent group vagrant | cut -d: -f3` > www /home/vagrant/www", run: "always"
In the code above, I am appending
\\?\to the current directory absolute path. This will actually force the Windows API to allow an increase in the MAX_PATH variable (normally capped at 260). Read more about max path. This is happening during the sharedfolder creation which is intentionally handled by VBoxManage and not Vagrant's "synced_folder" method. The last bit is pretty self-explanatory; we create the new shared folder and then make sure it's mounted each time the machine is accessed or touched since Vagrant likes to reload its mounts/shared folders on each load.
ssh+git:URLs for GitHub repos, breaking proxies
I fixed this issue for several of my colleagues by running the following two commands:
git config --global url."https://github.com/".insteadOf [email protected]: git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://
One thing we noticed is that the
.gitconfigused is not always the one expected so if you are on a machine that modified the home path to a shared drive, you need to ensure that your
.gitconfigis the same on both your shared drive and in

You are trying to talk SSL to an unencrypted endpoint. More often than not, this is due to a proxy configuration error (see also this helpful, if dated, guide). In this case, you do not want to disable
strict-ssl – you may need to set up a CA / CA file for use with your proxy, but it's much better to take the time to figure that out than disabling SSL protection.
npm ERR! Error: SSL Error: CERT_UNTRUSTED
npm ERR! Error: SSL Error: UNABLE_TO_VERIFY_LEAF_SIGNATURE
This problem will happen if you're running Node 0.6. Please upgrade to node 0.8 or above. See this post for details.
You could also try these workarounds:
npm config set ca "" or
npm config set strict-ssl false
npm ERR! Error: SSL Error: SELF_SIGNED_CERT_IN_CHAIN
npm install npm -g --ca=""
npm config set ca=""
If this does not fix the problem, then you may have an SSL-intercepting proxy. (For example, https://github.com/npm/npm/issues/7439#issuecomment-76024878)

ENOTEMPTYerrors in output
npm is written to use resources efficiently on install, and part of this is that it tries to do as many things concurrently as is practical. Sometimes this results in race conditions and other synchronization issues. As of npm 2.0.0, a very large number of these issues were addressed. If you see
ENOTEMPTY unlink, or something similar in your log output, try updating npm to the latest version. If the problem persists, look at npm/npm#6043 and see if somebody has already discussed your issue.

We're working on fixing this one, but it's a fairly subtle race condition and it's taking us a little time. You might try moving your This has been fixed in versions of npm newer than
