Npm install @openzeppelin/network fails with an unrecognized command > ln -s ./lib/react ./react

npm install @openzeppelin/network

'ln' is not recognized as an internal or external command,


ln is a standard command in UNIX operating systems, like Linux or macOS. However it looks like you try to install in Windows. I am not author, so I am not sure if this is supported or not.

If it is not then I suggest you try to run under Windows Subsystem for Linux.


Hey @MWaser! Unfortunately we don’t support windows as a platform at that moment. Please try 'Windows Subsystem for Linux` or Linux/MacOs. I am sorry for the inconvenience!

You should be able to use Git Bash on Windows to install, but I would recommend using WSL. (I moved to WSL2 and it appears to be going well).

Hi @MWaser,

Checking that you were able to install on WSL or on Windows using Git Bash?
