[Resolved] Windows choco install meteor does not finish

#1

Using choco install meteor it does not finish the second Extracting command. Already 30 minutes gone bye without any sign of activity or result.

#2

The process ended but not all is well. I got the following result:

Chocolatey timed out waiting for the command to finish. The timeout
specified (or the default value) was ‘2700’ seconds. Perhaps try a
higher --execution-timeout? See choco -h for details.
The install of meteor was NOT successful.
Error while running ‘C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\lib\meteor\tools\chocolateyinstall.ps1’.
See log for details.

Chocolatey installed 0/1 packages. 1 packages failed.
See the log for details (C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\logs\chocolatey.log).

Failures

  • meteor (exited -1) - Error while running ‘C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\lib\meteor\tools\chocolateyinstall.ps1’.
    See log for details.

Can't run meteor

Yeah because Meteor (and node packages in general) include many small files, real time scanning can slow down installs by up to 10-20x.
Temporarily disabling during install is recoomended.

It’s also a good idea to white-listing the meteor folders (and your project) after install so rebuilding your app when it changes isn’t too slow

@vinayv9, @coagmano
Thanks, disable window defender resolved this issue.

After installing meteor I stumbled on the next issue but I opened another topic for that.
