Bower error on installing Roots 7.0.1

After I cloned roots theme to my local, I run “npm install”. It has some issues on bower install part. Throw error message of “ENORESRARGET No tag found that was able to satify 1.4.2”. I did search about it, and it seemed related to bower. I cleaned cache, updated bower and still run into the same problem.

Anyone has the similar issue?

Try this: https://github.com/bower/bower/issues/852

Tried those suggestion, including “rm bower.json bower init”. It worked with a fresh bower.json. But once I added dependency back to the fresh one, it broke again. Here is the full error msg:

Which dependencies are you adding?

The same set from source bower.json -

“dependencies”: {
“modernizr”: “2.8.2”,
“jquery”: “1.11.1”,
“bootstrap”: “3.2.0”,
“respond”: “1.4.2”
}

Try running npm -g upgrade anywhere, then npm upgrade inside your theme root.

Tried, with no luck. :frowning: Could this be something to do my Win7 dev envorinment?

I tried a fresh install of Composer and Roots in a Mac. It seems bower install is fine. No errors at all. I guess the issue in PC was probably related to permission on access certain files.

Anyone use PC for Roots theme development?

Same here. Windows 7

I also have this issue on Win7 dev environment. I reverted to an older version of Roots.
