Meteor commands causes RangeError

I’m having a problem where running any Meteor command results in a range error like this:

I never had this problem before until today. I’ve been using Meteor for 3 years, but have been using Express extensively for the last 5 months, so something I installed since that time must be interfering with Meteor.

What I have done:

  • Completely removed Meteor + installed it again
  • Tried the alternate installation as well
  • Removed all npm modules in the AppData folder since the last time I used Meteor
  • Looked through this issue thread, but there are no solutions to this problem

None of these things worked. I get the same error every single time I try to run any Meteor command. I’m completely lost as to what to do now.

creating new windows account and installing Meteor again works, but migrating my meteor projects from one user to the other is a real pain in the ass. How horrible this entire scenario is!
