Did you run it as administrator.


#3

Do you use a http proxy?


#4

yes I did that but I didn’t successful .


#5

No. I didn’t use proxy, I trid it on a VPS located in London installed successfully but on my own PC no. I live in Iran, Is it because of ‘Sanctions against Iran’ ??
and also the old installer works and installed the old version.


#6

Can you actually reach packages.meteor.com?

Sounds to me like your connection has problems.

#7

@rhywden. Yes I can and sign in with my meteor account successfully.
but I have to use a vpn to download this manually:
https://static-meteor.netdna-ssl.com/packages-bootstrap/1.7.0.5/meteor-bootstrap-os.windows.x86_64.tar.gz


#8

I’m going to guess it’s be cause of the (stupid) sanctions


#9

I think so. any suggestion for install it off-line?For example download something then install it,
I installed meteor with old installer but it is the older version.

You can run Meteor from a git checkout (you can checkout any branch/release):

However, I’ve not tried this from Windows.

Alternatively, you can install a specific release (has the same requirements for use as the above, but is a single branch only).
