Cannot Start Meteor


#1

Since installing I’ve been struggling to get started with Meteor for a day now.

Here is what happens when I type meteor at the cmd prompt -

C:\Users\Chris&Vera>meteor
’Vera\AppData\Local.meteor’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
The system cannot find the path specified.

Looks like the parser might be having trouble with the ampersand in your username :smile:

I’ve changed my windows account name to just Chris but Chris&Vera is still there. I’m assuming reinstalling will still install into Chris&vera. What should I do?

You could probably fix it by editing the registry or something (you’ll have to google it). Or create a new user.

Fixed the user name problem and still can’t get meteor to run however, all I get now at the cmd prompt is -

‘meteor’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
