Hi @prajoth89,

It seems your Node.js path is invalid, could you please share with us what you set?
You can retrieve the path under SettingsSonarLint and check the Node.js path field.

The path should be a valid and absolute file path. For information, Node.js allows us to analyze some languages (JavaScript and TypeScript).

Also, could you please provide more information on how this error happened? Have you made any changes related to this path, to Node.js, or to the SonarLint settings in general?

Thank you!

Hi Nicolas,

Sorry for the delay in my reply. I noticed that the node js path is wrong after I posted the exception stack trace in the sonarqube community website. I have fixed to the right path and it’s working fine now. Anyways thanks a lot for your help

I’m glad the issue got resolved!

Nonetheless, we understand the experience is not ideal and as a result, we created this ticket. We will try to avoid allowing users to set an invalid Node.js path in the settings so that when you restart the IDE it doesn’t show errors.

And thank you for using SonarLint! :sonarlint:

Cool that’s great.
