Hello all, I tried following the instructions to install sanity into an existing NextJS product and I was getting this error after :
npm create sanity@latest -- --project ... --dataset production --provider google

Error: Command failed with exit code 2 (ENOENT): npm install --legacy-peer-deps --save @sanity/vision@3 sanity@3 @sanity/image-url@1 styled-components@5.2
spawn cmd.exe ENOENT
I tried
npm install --legacy-peer-deps
and restarting VSCode in Windows, but still gives the same error. Someone here had the same error, but there are no replies to that question.

This is a Windows error having to do with permissions on your machine, not with Sanity.

Thank you, I just switched to another OS to install and add it to the project and then pulled the changes to the Windows machine and it worked.
