Ok, so you have Node.JS installed on your machine and you are trying to work with NPM and gives you following error.

Error: ENOENT, stat 'C:\Users\Demo\AppData\Roaming\npm'

This seems to be the problem with the installer in the Node.JS or issues related to how the folders are being setup. In order to fix this issue, you need to go at following Location and create a new Directory named "npm".

Download MSI

Make sure to change the Demo with your user account under which the NPM is being installed.

By the way, those of you who are interested, this ENOENT is the short form for Error: No Entry. Meaning there is no entry found for directory NPM under user's AppData/Roaming folder. So the simple fix is to create the directory at that location.
