How to install version 3 for testing?

Hello, I’m trying to install the meteor 3 version for testing, but we’re not able to do so. What are we doing wrong?

Where do we follow version releases?

Thank you for your attention.

You need to install the exact alpha version to test now

Thank you for your attention. Could you help us?

We still can’t install meteor in -g

PS C:\Users\marce> npm install -g meteor

He is using Windows, so this solution might not work :confused:

@marcelodelta, you should have installed NVM in your machine so that you can install the global meteor using a Node.js v14
You can check it here for more information

Once installed in your machine you can run:

meteor create name-of-app --release 3.0-alpha.19

@grubba,It’s worked. thank you

I hope I posted in the right section.

Thanks in advance :wink: !

This issue is because the alpha version attempts to include POSIX. To fix see:
