npm Erroring Out on Windows 10 Fast Ring Build 14367

Just in case someone else is running into the same thing, I’m running Windows 10 Insiders Build 14367 (on the fast ring), and I’m unable to use npm. When I do a simple npm -v I get this error…

C:\code>npm -v
events.js:160
throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event

My workaround is simply to type bash and get into Ubuntu where I have node and npm. There’s not really any disadvantage to this either since it operates on the same directory structure. I’m loving this Bash on Ubuntu on Windows thing.
