HANA Express 1 SP12 AWS SAP webIDE for SAP HANA- Builder 'mtabuilder' is not available for workspace

I am trying to create a Node.js Module using the SAP WebIDE for SAP HANA on my HANA Express Edition 1 SPS 12 on AWS. However, when i try to build the application, I get the error:

Build of jaytest_xsadvanced failed. Builder 'mtabuilder' is not available for workspace workspaceg5wib2oxjp9lp853.

HDB info shows the following:

I see the di-builder and the demo-web (which is the project I had created):

When I try to run the server.js node module, I get the error:

What are all the steps I need to do on SAP HANA Express to be able to build and run a nodeJS module?

Here is my SAP HANA Express Edition on AWS which I just launched a few days back:

I have the XSA_DEV as Space Developer in the SAP space.

    Dear Jay,

    I saw you are working on this issue along with another question raised with the link below:

    How to get di-space-enablement-ui for SAP HANA Express

    Could you keep us informed whether this issue would be solved as well once you download and install HXE HANA 2.0 SPS01 successfully?

    Should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Best regards,

    I created the Role collections for WEBIDE_DEVELOPER and added this to the XSA_DEV user. Now when I try to build, I do not get the error - but the build just seems to hang and return a timeout. So it seems I am closer - but still not there..
