Installing MeteorJS on Windows


I've been trying to install Meteorjs on windows but error occurs. I already tried downloading another installer and restarting my computer but it doesn't work. It always pops 'failed to contact install server. Please try again' then displays the message 'One or more issues caused the setup to fail. Please fix the issues and then retry setup. For more information see the log file.'

Under that it displays '0x80070643. Fatal Error during installation.'

what to do with this?

One option is to run meteor preview for windows. Believe it is a standalone copy of meteor 1.1

(this doesn't address the issue of connecting to server though because when you try to create a meteor account you get a similar error).

there definitely is a way to install through command line on windows (which annoyingly I can't remember from my other machine). Perhaps through npm...
