How do you run on windows ? I am getting the following error [api] [frontend] 'PORT' is not recognized as an internal or external command, [frontend] operable program or batch file. [frontend] npm ERR! code ELIFECYCLE [frontend] npm ERR! errno 1 [frontend] npm ERR! todomvc@0.0.1 frontend: PORT=5000 REACT_APP_API_URL=http://localhost:3000 react-scripts start [frontend] npm ERR! Exit status 1 [frontend] npm ERR! [frontend] npm ERR! Failed at the todomvc@0.0.1 frontend script. [frontend] npm ERR! This is probably not a problem with npm.

Hello, there! I'm Arlene, a Learner Advocate, and a tester-in-training. With the new release of Cypress 4.9, I've taken on making notes, adding learner notes, and updating the transcript so it can be more useful to the community.

Than you all for your comments thus far - I'm trying to make sure that all of these issues are covered, and have the 4.9 updates.
