nodemon : File C:\Users\Eva\AppData\Roaming\npm\nodemon.ps1 cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this syste

Step 1:

Open Windows PowerShell with Run As Administrator.

Step 2:

As you see the error is about_Execution_Policies, first to see what's there in the present execution policy. Use this command on Windows PowerShell to get it


Here you'll see 'Restricted'. So, this is the main reason- running scripts on this system is 'Restricted'.

Step 3:

Now we need to change this policy to allow the operation. Use this command to make it Unrestricted -

Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

Here you'll get a prompt message. Press Y to change it

That's it. To ensure, you may check the execution policy status by this command again


You'll get the output 'Unrestricted'

The problem is solved. Now you can use nodemon on your machine.
