Installing Meteor 1.6 on Windows 7


#1

I’ve been trying to get meteor set up on my machine for the past few hours and have had no luck what so ever. I really want to give meteor a try for a project I’m working on but I’m about to give up. I was hoping someone here could lend a hand.

I’ve set up chocolatey as the install page says to, everything seems to be working just fine. So I go to run “choco install meteor” and I get the following.

PS C:\Windows\system32> choco install meteor
Chocolatey v0.10.8
Installing the following packages:
meteor
By installing you accept licenses for the packages.

The package meteor wants to run 'chocolateyinstall.ps1'.
Note: If you don't run this script, the installation will fail.

I’ve looked at the logs and haven’t seen much that would point me in the right direction.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.

Thanks everyone for the responses! I actually gave up on trying to get it running on windows and set up an old laptop to run ubuntu for this and other development projects I’ve wanted to work on. Hopefully this will point someone else in the right direction at some point! I’m looking forward to getting to know Meteor much more deeply.
