Install from choco gives errors with meteor commands. (windows)

#1

I’ve uninstalled meteor and reinstalled it a few times now to try diagnose another issue. I reinstalled it using https://install.meteor.com/windows (executable) to see if could solve some of my problems and now when I install it with choco I get an error when I try to run any meteor commands. Even when I thoroughly uninstall it prior.
I have windows defender and a/v software completely disabled for install and running.

meteor --version
C:\Users\root\AppData\Local\.meteor\packages\meteor-tool\1.8.0_2\mt-os.windows.x86_64\tools\static-assets\server\mini-files.js:27

When you uninstalled, did you delete the C:\Users\root\AppData\Local\.meteor\ directory?

#3

Yeah all gone. I went back to the install exe but I have to reset my project or delete files to get it to start each time.

Oh i dont have the directory called C:\tools\ as mentioned above. Im pretty sure thats supposed to be C:\Users\root\AppData\Local.meteor\packages\meteor-tool\1.8.0_2\mt-os.windows.x86_64\tools but obviously the trace is still coming through hmm

For some reason I didn’t end up with METEOR_INSTALLATION in my system variables. I also opened an issue here. https://github.com/meteor/meteor/issues/10444
