Facing problems in setting up the project

I am trying to setup the project in my local system and it's showing some errors.

Steps I followed after reading the documentation joplin/BUILD.md at dev · laurent22/joplin · GitHub

  1. first i opened powershell using administrative rights and installed windows-build-tools using 'npm install -g windows-build-tools' in root of joplin folder i.e. D:\GSOC\joplin
  2. then i executed npm install in the root of joplin folder i.e. D:\GSOC\joplin

This didin't work for me as it showed "This is probably not a problem with npm. There is likely additional logging output above."

So I searched for the solution in stackoverflow (angular - error: This is probably not a problem with npm. There is likely additional logging output above - Stack Overflow)

I deleted the entire project in my system cloned it again. This time I deleted all the package-lock.json files from the entire project as per the stackoverflow solution and executed npm install. Still it's not working.
The error is as follows:

After forking, I have to clone the project by being on the dev branch right?

Yes.

This looks like maybe you had the file open in another app when running npm.
