Unable to run Application Designer

Hi All,

I followed all the procedure to install Application Designer. However, receiving an error message as the following: D:\ODK_Application_Designer_v2.0.5\app-designer-2.0.5>grunt
‘node’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I must be missing something. Your support will be appreciated.



It sounds like node is missing from your path. I am assuming you are on Windows. Try adding the nodejs folder path to your System Path environment variable. The following steps should help.

  1. Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Environment Variables

  2. In “System variables” find the Path variable and add the nodejs folder path. On my machine, the nodejs folder is under C:\Program Files\nodejs.

I hope this helps.


Thanks, Clarice. I had a wrong path on system Path environment variable.
