Compass for Windows 10

Hi all.

Anyone could help me ? I tryed several times to install compass but it was not possible on windows 10.
Is there anything I can do in order to solve this ?

Thanks and Best REgards.

Why do you say it’s impossible? What error messages did you get? Which package did you use, which steps did you take to try the installation? Etc etc. We will need some actual information in order to help you figure out what’s wrong.

Hi Tess.

Thank your for your attention.

I have tried to install both community and beta version. I could see two errors on log file.

  1. Cannot create .betaId directory: Windows 10 doesnt allow to create dot folders even with an administration user.

2018-12-01 16:53:23> CheckForUpdateImpl: Couldn’t write out staging user ID, this user probably shouldn’t get beta anything: System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Não foi possível localizar uma parte do caminho ‘C:\Users\rodrigo\AppData\Local\MongoDBCompassCommunity\packages.betaId’.
em System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)

  1. The executable is not compatible with this operational system.

2018-12-01 16:54:19> ApplyReleasesImpl: Couldn’t run Squirrel hook, continuing: C:\Users\rodrigo\AppData\Local\MongoDBCompassCommunity\app-1.16.1\MongoDBCompassCommunity.exe: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): O executável especificado não é um aplicativo válido para esta plataforma de SO.

PS. I have disabled norton antivirus but did not resolve.

Thanks for your help.

One silly question: your Windows 10, is it 32-bit or 64-bit compiled? Because Compass supposedly only works on 64-bit systems.

Found using Google:

To find the Windows type, do the following:

  1. Click Start and right-click My Computer.
  2. Select Properties.
  3. From the General tab, look at the Windows version name listed under System. If the version name contains the text “x64 Edition”, your computer has a 64-bit version of Windows.

I have the same problem with compass. My SO is Windows 10 64bits. i haven’t been anle to install Compass yet
