Meteor does not launch - exit code 8


#1

Hello,

Meteor does not launch on my computer. I’m using the last version, on Windows 7 (64 bits).

The main errors are : “exited with code 8” and “unable to allocate arraybuffer”. The beginning of the error message (sorry it is very long) is :

C:\Users\Clarisse\Desktop\profileBuilder-dev>meteor
[[[[[ C:\Users\Clarisse\Desktop\profileBuilder-dev ]]]]]

=> Started proxy.

Does anyone have a clue about what I should do?

Thank you in advance;

This looks to me like the authentication for your database is failing.


#3

Hello @copleykj ,

If it is an authentification problem, why does it work on my colleagues’ computer?


#4

That question I can not answer as it could be any number of factors, but the line above clearly indicates that that authentication to mongodb failed.


#5

I have the same problem after following Turnbull’s book.

Me, too! I am currently working through the lessons in Your Second Meteor Application. When I got to the beginning of Chapter 6 (User Accounts), I suddenly started getting a very strange error message. The message started to appear after I added HTML lines to the ‘Register’ template. I knew that couldn’t possibly trigger the sort of error I was seeing, and I tried everything I could to see if I had misplaced a comma or a brace or a semicolon – anything.

Long story short, I copied the .JS, .HTML and .CSS files to a new project and, voilà, they worked again. Until I shut it down and tried to restart it. Now that project doesn’t work either. So now I’m stuck with two identical projects which clearly can work but won’t right now.

Again, I am completely baffled by this. All I can figure is that some code in one of the files inside the .meteor directory has changed or something. I certainly haven’t changed anything at all.

Here are the error messages I am getting:

Your app is crashing. Here’s the latest log.
