Node Red won't load after trying to install palette

Hi, this is my first-time using Node Red forums for help. I was trying to install the "node-red-contrib-netbeast" palette and it failed, but now it's causing issues with my Node Red where it won't let me open it on the localhost. I'm not tech savvy and don't know how to code, so any help would be greatly appreciated as I have a project due soon that requires Node Red and I still have other issues with my project.

Hi, try manually uninstalling node-red-contrib-netbeast

from the .node-red folder (usually c:\users\xxxxx\.node-red - where xxxxx is the user who runs node-red e.g. c:\users\billy\.node-red or perhaps c:\users\bob\.node-red)...

cd c:\users\xxxxx\.node-red
npm uninstall node-red-contrib-netbeast

Then try starting node-red once more.

Hi, thank you so much for your help. When manually uninstalling what is the proper command? I tried

'.node-red' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\Users\xxxxx>uninstall node-red-contrib-netbeast
'uninstall' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\Users\xxxxx>npm uninstall node-red-contrib-netbeast

It is exactly as I wrote...

that is ...

  • cd c:\users\xxxxx\.node-red
  • enter ←
  • npm uninstall node-red-contrib-netbeast
  • enter ←

just make sure xxxx is correct.

Thank you, Steve-Mcl! Finally got it running again. Ended up taking me through "npm fund", "npm audit", and "npm audit fix" to get it to work again and run via local host.
