[Solved] Can not run my project on windows 10


#1

Hi,

My previous windows 8 computer is broken so I got a new computer with windows 10.
Now I can not run my meteor project on windows 10.
I have installed meteor with Chocolatey, then:
#1 meteor npm install
#2 meteor --settings=settings-dev.json
What am I doing wrong?
My computer crashes every time, I have to restart the computer.
It never finishes to download meteor packages.

Regards,


#2

Hi @jpfernandezl

Are you getting any errors?

What steps did you follow when installing?

Did you install chocolatey and meteor in an administrator command prompt?

Did you create and run your project in a non-administrator command prompt?

Hi,

Are you getting any errors?
No, my computer crashes every time, I have to restart the computer.
I am not able to see if there are errors.

What steps did you follow when installing?
#1 install meteor with chocolatey
#2 meteor npm install
#3 meteor --settings=settings-dev.json

Did you install chocolatey and meteor in an administrator command prompt?
I did, I install them with Administrator PowerShell which comes with windows 10 by default.

Did you create and run your project in a non-administrator command prompt?
I have tried both: command prompt and PowerShell.

I tried to create a new project and I could not, at least my computer did not crash.
The output is the following from the Windows PowerShell:

If your entire computer crashes when trying to run Meteor, that sounds like a serious hardware issue

You mention using meteor --settings=settings-dev.json but none of the official new project skeletons contain settings. Are you using a different scaffolding tool?

I ask if you ran the meteor commands in a non-administrator prompt because running meteor, even once, with an administrator prompt can wreck the file permissions on meteor and your project, rendering meteor unusable.
It’s a frequent source of issues on Windows because it’s such an easy mistake to make after installing.

I also note that you’re working on D:\ drive. I’ve never managed to get Meteor working outside of C:\ drive (though I know others that have). Try using meteor on C:\ drive first to check if it’s a drive path resolution issue

Hi,

I get the same error when trying to create a hello-world project on C: unit

C:\repos>

I did not install mongoDb or node? Are those needed?
Do you know anyone who codes meteor projects on Windows 10?


#8

@jpfernandezl I am running my project on same meteor version 1.7.0.3 on windows 10.

MongoDB for sure does not need to be installed as meteor ships with a mini mongo which you can use.

Not sure about nodejs fully but looking at the logs you supplied, meteor is using npm command from within meteor itself.
Check C:\Users\USUARIO\AppData\Local\.meteor\packages\meteor-tool\1.7.0_3\mt-os.windows.x86_64\dev_bundle\bin\npm.cmd install --production=false.

The logs also show that full output is available on C:\Users\USUARIO\AppData\Roaming\npm-cache\_logs\2018-07-06T05_19_25_754Z-debug.log, can you check & post this output as well? Probably this will provide more information on your problem.

Running the app or creating will not require you to have adminstrator access or running cmd with adminstrator mode.


#9

Half the devs where I work use Meteor on Windows 10 and we deploy our apps on kiosk machines running Windows 10. It definitely does work

My guess is that it is a file permissions error, likely because a meteor command was run in an administrator level prompt.

First, do post up the npm error logs that @nileshparab mentioned

Then try doing a reinstall of meteor

// Administrator prompt
choco uninstall meteor -y
choco install meteor -y

// New user level prompt
c:\
cd repos
meteor create hello-world
cd hello-world
meteor run

#11

Did your try to right click cmd and run as adminitrator?


#12

Unfortunately can’t see anything obvious in the logs. Can you try re-installing and being really careful not to run Meteor as an administrator?


#13

@jpfernandezl could not find a pointer in logs. You should try reinstalling @coagmano stated. If the problem still persists, install node 8.11.3 (which meteor uses) & npm 6.x on machine & try again. Just blindly trying this because I found a slightly similar problem here.


#14

@coagmano You were right, thank you so much.
You saved my ass for the second time.
WINDOWS USERS NEVER RUN METEOR COMMANDS AS ADMINISTRATOR.

Thanks for you too @nileshparab

By the way, you can not run meteor projects from D: unit, only C: unit
