I am plagued with VS crashing when restoring npm packages. My project path is c:\scm\Project so long paths caused by project location are not an issue.
I do not have a separate installation of Node and the existing install appears to be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Web Tools\External.
I have tried to use npm-windows-upgrade from https://github.com/felixrieseberg/npm-windows-upgrade without luck.
Does anyone have insight for an unmodified, vs supplied installation of npm?

Finally found a fix at https://github.com/aspnet/Home/issues/968.
My solution also uses git and adding the node_modules to .gitignore solved it.
