Error in installation of arduino/node-red-contrib-arduino-iot-cloud in node-red

I am facing a problem when installing the "node-red-contrib-arduino-iot-cloud" in the "manege palette" or via CMD of Node-Red. Whenever I try to install through the graphical interface it throws the following error:

Node-RED version: v2.2.2

If anyone can help me, thank you very much.

I think that is saying that you need to install git. The instructions for installing the node on its home page should say that though, which it doesn't. I suggest installing git and trying again.

Thanks Colin, I installed GIT but still getting the same error

Are you able to install other modules ok?
If so then please try installing it in a terminal window, go into your .node-red directory and run
npm install @arduino/node-red-contrib-arduino-iot-cloud
and post the full output here, including the line showing the install command. Hopefully that will give us a clue. Probably worth rebooting first.

Thanks a lot Colin, its working now after restart and hopefully also after installation of git.
