One of the two Meteor examples does not work on Windows 10

Hello everyone. Installed Meteor v1.4.1.2, completed the basic Simple Todos tutorial and wanted to check the two examples mentioned in it:

meteor create --example localmarket
meteor create --example todos

Had no trouble cloning both repos and even running the localmarket with meteor command.

But I cannot get the todos example working. The iinstallation itself was a success: meteor npm install.
Unfortunately, when I run meteor command I get this:

$ meteor
[[[[[ ~\J\meteor\todos ]]]]]

=> Started proxy.
=> A patch (Meteor for your current release is available!
   Update this project now with 'meteor update --patch'.
=> Started MongoDB.
      throw error;

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open 'C:\Users\MADRU_~1\AppData\Local\Temp\mt-1rasony\os\packages\'
    at Error (native)

There is indeed no mt-1rasony directory in Local\Temp, to say nothing of anything in it. I have tried to remove and add the percolate:verlocityjs package. Removing it works fine. But after that I cannot add it back any more because of exactly the same error. Catch-22!

Tried to completely remove and reinstall both the Todos example and also Meteor itself but this error reappears every time.

Does anyone know a fix for this on Windows 10?

The same Problem is Here…i have use windows 10 OS,And run this code " git clone" . The Above Errors are detected… Myapp only worked for me…

A small update. If I comment out these two packages in the project’s .meteor/packages file:


I can then succesfully run meteor without this error. Unfortunately, the application does not work without these two packages. In the DevTools console, I see this error:

Exception in defer callback: Error: No such template: momentum
