TypeScript error TS1005: ‘;’ expected (II)

Your installation is wrong; you are using a very old compiler version (

tsc --version should return a version of 2.5.2.

Check where that old compiler is located using: which tsc (or where tsc) and remove it.

Try uninstalling the “global” typescript

npm uninstall -g typescript

Installing as part of a local dev dependency of your project

npm install typescript --save-dev

Execute it from the root of your project
