Unable to expo init or expo start

I have a big problem atm, i cann’t expo init a new project and also i can’t expo start my projects because i am keep getting this error:

Uncaught Error [Error: EPERM: operation not permitted, open ‘C:\Users\Pruti.expo\PATH’] {
errno: -4048,
code: ‘EPERM’,
syscall: ‘open’,
path: ‘C:\Users\Pruti\.expo\PATH’
My npm --version is 6.13.6 and my expo version is :3.11.5.Also i’ve uninstall expo and the reinstall it several times.

Any solution please?

It looks like the permissions on the C:\Users\Pruti\.expo directory are incorrect. e.g. you started expo as an admin user instead of as your normal user.

Try removing that directory.

I ended up removing that directory and all the directories associated with expo after the uninstall but still not working :frowning:

Edit: I’ve uninstall npm, expo and also node and then install them with the latest version and it fixed my problem
