Hi. I’m not sure if this is the same issue, but it seems there is a problem with recent versions of expo-cli on Windows. Your error messages don’t quite match up with that one, though. Anyway, see if installing version 3.5.0 helps:

expo install -g expo-cli@3.5.0

Hi @mehak_khan

There have been a couple of updates to expo-cli since I posted my comment. Can you try upgrading to the latest version to see if the problem has been fixed? If there’s still a problem, please let us know and then you can downgrade again as per my other comment.
