Problems creating a project on Windows 7: Assertion failed! Error Message


#1

Hi,

I like to try out meteor, but I didn’t come far. Please check following screenshot

Would be thankful for some help. After I restart my computer I can execute one single “meteor” command. All following commands display above error. Therefore I’m not able to create a project :sweat:

Thanks for your help

Regards
Michael

Do you have the MS Build Tools installed? Check out the guide


#3

Thanks for your hint. Unfortunatly the installation did not solve the problem.
I’m running Windows 7 64Bit, Node v6.1.0 and downloaded the latest meteor 1.4 release yesterday.

Are there any other requirements which must be considered for working with meteor?


#4

Meteor comes with its own version of node. I am not on Windows, so I don’t know if the standard windows CMD is actually supported …


#5

Thank you jamgold. FYI Unfortunalty I was not able to solve this issue, therefore I was not able to test meteor and can not use it in future projects. (I also tried to execute meteor commands with powershell, but the same error message was displayed.)


#6

Did you get a fix to this issue? I got the same error while using any of the meteor command from windows 10 home edition CMD.
Thanks
