I was able to solve the problem by changing line 106 of webpack.common.js from

'awesome-typescript-loader?{configFileName: "tsconfig.webpack.json"}',


'awesome-typescript-loader?{tsconfig: "tsconfig.webpack.json"}',

Other Answers:

If you have your separated tsconfig in NON-root folder (e.g. config folder), you have to set typeRoots prop of this config to be relative (e.g. "../node_modules/@types")

This appears to be a bug affecting just Windows with TypeScript 2.1.5. It goes away when downgrading to TypeScript 2.0.10.

But I found a better solution:
Just above "types:" in both tsconfig.json files add the following:

"typeRoots": [

TypeScript should automatically look there, but it appears this is failing on Windows.
