There seems to be a fairly common problem with Meteor on windows where it just sits in the console with "Extracting [insert package name here]…
It’s difficult to know what is happening, it seems to be in an infinite loop but Meteor fails to fail gracefully and just sits there. None of the solutions proposed seem to work. MDG don’t seem interested in the problem.
It doesn’t give me confidence in the platform at all when a problem keeps occurring on Windows and no solution is forthcoming. It’s been around for quite a few versions and does not appear to be anywhere near solved.
If it at least failed you might be able to debug the it but it just sits there with no indication of what the problem is.
Have to say it’s probably my worst ever experience with a development platform ever, and I’ve used a lot of them.
I’ve uninstalled/reinstalled meteor (multiple times!), set Node at latest supported version, but meteor just happily sits there churning away extracting forever.
Does anybody know how to fix this or what is causing the issue?
Is there a simple solution to this?
