I have the same problem than Braulio, but 3 years later. The problem is that this code is new for me, and it had been running in others PCs, but now I don´t know how to run in my machine. I´ve tride downgrading Angular via these 3 commands:

npm uninstall -g @angular/cli

npm cache clean --force

npm install -g @angular/cli@7.0.3

but it doesn´t work... and sincerenly, I think this is not the solution now, because 3 years have passed. Any ideas about what´s happening?

Annex: my log, but as I said is very similar than Braulio´s

Dear @Braulio Linares

The MDB Angular 7 is not compatible with Angular 8. Please downgrade your project to the Angular 7 until we'll ship MDB 8.

We're working on it, but you guys have to give us more time because we want to check everything twice.

Best Regards,

Hi Damian I create a new project with Angular 7.0.3 and i still have the same probleme, inclusi i use the manual instalation and the same problem, what i can do?

Dear @Braulio Linares

There's no possibility, that you're having similar problem when using Angular 7 application.

Is there a possibility to send me your application via email? You can find me here:

Please remove the node_modules directory before sending.

Best Regards,

I remove node_modules and package-lock change the version of @angular-devkit/build-angular, and everything is good. Thank you very much for the support @Damian Gemza!
