- You should be able to now run commands in the Visual Studio Code terminal for Angular and Node.js.
I was trying to create my first Angular project using Visual Studio code, I successfully got the Angular CLI installed alongside Node.js. But when I tried to run the command ng new (also errors for ng serve command) I was met with the following error message:
ng : File C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\npm\ng.ps1 cannot be loaded. The file C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\npm\ng.ps1 is not digitally signed. You cannot run this script on the current system. For more information about running scripts and setting execution policy, see about_Execution_Policies at https:/go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=135170. At line:1 char:1 + ng new + ~~ + CategoryInfo : SecurityError: (:) , PSSecurityException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : UnauthorizedAccess
I was able to resolve this error message by opening Windows Powershell as Administrator and then running the following command:
This error is thrown because Windows does not want just any random powershell script to run on your machine. For more information about this command please read Microsoft's Article - About Execution Policies.
