Are you sure you installed all dependencies after updating your package.json?


yes i’m sure, even when when i try running without webpack using tns run android
it display a warning

npm WARN schema-utils@0.4.3 requires a peer of webpack@^2.0.0 || ^3.0.0 but none was installed.
but it runs successfully

here my package.json

Is it a Typescript project (non Angular)?


i’ve tried both same probleme :confused:


have you read this blog for latest changes for webpack


Hope you are using the latest version of CLI. On my end I was not able to reproduce the issue, it works fine. May be if you can create a sample project where we can reproduce the issue, we may able to help.


i’ve solved it, i just needed to install the dependencies globally with -g so i can use from any directory, and thank very much for your help :slight_smile:
