I have been trying to walk through the tutorial "Build your first SharePoint client-side web part (Hello World part 1)", and I have found it to be quite troublesome. I've worked through many of the npm package errors that I've had and finally gotten to "gulp serve" to launch the webpart workbench, but instead my browser displays the following error:

Error: EISDIR: illegal operation on a directory, symlink 'G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules@microsoft\sp-webpart-workbench' -> 'G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\temp\workbench-packages@microsoft_sp-webpart-workbench' at Object.fs.symlinkSync (fs.js:1014:18) at WorkbenchPage._getUrlForPackagePath (G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules@microsoft\sp-webpart-workbench\lib\api\WorkbenchPage.js:166:17) at WorkbenchPage._generateWorkbenchPageContent (G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules@microsoft\sp-webpart-workbench\lib\api\WorkbenchPage.js:33:39) at WorkbenchPage.handleWorkbenchRequest (G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules@microsoft\sp-webpart-workbench\lib\api\WorkbenchPage.js:25:51) at Layer.handle [as handle_request] (G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules\express\lib\router\layer.js:95:5) at next (G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules\express\lib\router\route.js:137:13) at Route.dispatch (G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules\express\lib\router\route.js:112:3) at Layer.handle [as handle_request] (G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules\express\lib\router\layer.js:95:5) at G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules\express\lib\router\index.js:281:22 at Function.process_params (G:\training\coding\helloworld-webpart\node_modules\express\lib\router\index.js:335:12)

What does this mean and how do I resolve this error?
