Troubleshooting Meteor on Windows

Can't start Mongo server

If your embed MongoDB is not starting when you run meteor and you see messages like these:

C:\Users\user\app> meteor
=> Started proxy.
Unexpected mongo exit code 3221225781. Restarting.
Unexpected mongo exit code 3221225781. Restarting.
Unexpected mongo exit code 3221225781. Restarting.
Can't start Mongo server.

You probably need to install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015.

Download it here and install.

After installing vc_redist.x64 you should be able to run Meteor and MongoDB server without problems.
