Generally you will see an error like this when a npm node package is not installed properly or not installed in proper location.
Error :

throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
Error: Cannot find module 'XYZ'
at Function._resolveFilename (module.js:334:11)
at Function._load (module.js:279:25)
at Module.require (module.js:357:17)
at require (module.js:368:17)

In my case i have seen this happening when I have installed a node module using -g switch, so to fix this I would uninstall the module again and install it without -g switch as shown below :

npm install XYZ
