React Remix - Issue with finding @prisma/client module

I am not sure what the issue could be. I only update the Prisma client and have tried multiple things to try and get this working.

I have to rollback to earlier versions of my deployment. I haven’t changed the code for using Prisma at all.

As always…it was an easy bug.

@prisma/client was installed as a dev dependency for some reason when I updated it. Removed it and installed again and it was all working.
