SOLVED - Not able to create a meteor project (promise_server.js)


Just tried to create a new meteor project… This was working earlier, but has just stopped. Last thing I did was to install node inspector in an attempt to debug the server.

meteor create test
throw error;

Error: EPERM: operation not permitted, unlink 'E:\NewCodeRoot\Learning\Meteor.meteor\local\dev_bundle’
at Error (native)
at Object.fs.unlinkSync (fs.js:932:18)
at exports.makeLink (C:\tools\cli\dev-bundle-links.js:20:8)
at [object Object].ensureDevBundleLink (C:\tools\project-context.js:1444:7)
at [object Object]._readFile (C:\tools\project-context.js:1378:10)
at new exports.ReleaseFile (C:\tools\project-context.js:1328:8)
at C:\tools\cli\main.js:898:22



It turns out that in the directory where I was trying to create a new project there was a .meteor folder
E.g. I was trying to create test project in the Meteor folder
-Meteor --.meteor --project one --project two
If I delete this folder then the create succeeds
