Is the C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\.meteor directory still hanging around? It's a hidden directory so unless you have Folder Options - View - Show hidden files, folders, and drives set you'll never see it.

#3

No, both .meteor and .meteorsession (or whatever) have been removed.


#4

Btw, I also removed meteor using IObit uninstaller, removed registry entries completely, etc. Essentially there’s no trace of the old meteor lying around.


#5

What did you do with the error? My error is related with this


#7

Hi, the solution:

Go to C:\Users\Administrador(or other user folder)\AppData\Local\Package Cache, right click and open Properties
Go to Security tab and edit Permissions to allow Full control


#8

What steps to take to completely reinstall Meteor package on Windows7 ?? I am stuck as I cant uninstall (it doesnt seem to be there, including the hidden directories that I know of) and the windows installer just “completes” instaneously and says meteor i sready for use… which it isn’t. Any ideas will be very welcome.


#9

Is there a solution to this problem that I might request information about?


#10

restart into safemode + networking


#11

It’s an antivirus issue (Mcafee confirmed)
restart into safemode + networking
