Unable to install a NodeJS module

Problem

I'm trying to install a NodeJS module called "karma-typescript-preprocessor" (See: https://npmjs.org/package/karma-typescript-preprocessor), but I'm getting an error when trying to install it. It is used by Karma to compile typescript files before testing. Here's the error I get. How do I fix this?

I have added the dependency to package.json

"dependencies": {
        "express": "3.4.7",
        "ejs": "*",
        "less-middleware": "*",
        "formidable": "1.0.x",
        "socket.io": "0.9.x",
        "karma-typescript-preprocessor": "~0.1"
    }

I am trying to install the module in my project directory. If I try to install outside the Project directory, the module gets installed, but karma does not see it. Here's the error it throws:

  Perhaps you are missing some plugin?

Solution

"karma-typescript-preprocessor": "~0.1" is invalid. Try "karma-typescript-preprocessor": "0.0.6"

run npm info karma-typescript-preprocessor to find which versions are available.
