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.


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


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


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


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


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.


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


restart into safemode + networking


It’s an antivirus issue (Mcafee confirmed)
