Error with Karma test runner and PhantomJS


I've included "karma-phantomjs-launcher" and "karma-teamcity-reporter" plugins.

I'm using the command line runner in my build step with the following command. (The build agent is running Windows, so need to call it via node):

node ./node_modules/karma/bin/karma start --reporters teamcity --single-run --browsers PhantomJS --colors false

Here's the resulting build log:

How do I get an adapter that implements __karma__.start method?

I was able to create a TeamCity specific configuration. For some reason I hadn't seen documentation on how to specify a config file, but just passing the name of the file is what worked. I'm now using this and it works:

node ./node_modules/karma/bin/karma start "config/karma-teamcity.conf.js"

Within that config file I'm specifically listing the plugins and setting browsers, colors and singeRun properties to what I had been trying to do from the command line arguments.
