Why is it an error when any request is bower?

The error itself:
PS C:\OpenServer\OSPanel\domains\applestore.loc\catalog> bower i equalHeights
C:\Users\Evcalist\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\bower\lib\node_modules\bower-config\lib\util\rc.js:71
 throw error;
^

"catalog\view\theme\apple\libs\"
here is quote escaped. Remove the slash at the end or put the second slash in front of him
"catalog\view\theme\apple\libs\\"
or
"catalog\view\theme\apple\libs"
did not help(( - napoleon commented on June 10th 19 at 15:14
