Strange build agent issue

Hey guys,

You guys run a great service and I've been using it for quite a while now for my open source projects but I'm having a strange issue that I can't seem to fix on my end. The relevant build is here

The error I am getting is from a Nuget installed version of npm "npm ERR! uid must be an unsigned int"

I've looked around and it appears to be an issue with the user config which makes me think it might be due to the way the build agents are set up.

Any helps / ideas would be great?

    What do you mean by "Nuget installed version of npm"?

    Sorry, that could have been clearer :P

    Using this Nuget package

    It downloads a temp local version of npm so it can integrate with MSBuild

    Wow, never heard about that tool. I'd suggest you contacting the developer of that wrapper.

    Why don't just use "pure" node, npm, bower and others?

    ...and looks like most issues with that error are related to older versions of node.js like 0.10.x. Maybe latest node versions do not suffer from that.
