Unable to build Apache Cordova Project in Visual Studio 2015 Professional


When i create new Apache Cordova project in VS2015 Pro, i cant build the project.

I get an error saying that:

Error BLD401 Error : BLD00401 : Could not find module 'C:\Users\Bruker-NRX\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\vs-tac\app.js'. Please Go to Tools --> Options --> Tools for Apache Cordova --> Cordova Tools --> Clear Cordova Cache and try building again. AngularJsGoogleMap 1 Build
User generated image

This error is described here on anothe articale, but the solution wont work in my case:

And on MSDN how to configure Apache Cordova Tools:

he first thing happen when i create Apache Cordova is the error iam getting explained above.

Then i install npm by navigating in command prompt to my vs-tac folder located in folder(e:\Visual Studio\Programsfiles\Common7\IDE\Extensions\ApacheCordovaTools\Packages\vs-tac\ )

And run "npm -g install"

But i get an error , se pic:

Some how on google i find out that this issue is because of missing package.json file in vs-tac folder.
So i just run npm init
And after that i re-run npm -g install (succsessfully)
User generated image
And then i clear the cordova cache and restart the VS2015......But still iam getting the same error....

Error shown in VS2015:
User generated image
And the output looks like:
User generated image
and i cant find any npm-debug-log file in my vs-tac folder....???
