Help with HaxeFlixel Setup
Hello all. Today I started to set up HaxeFixel. I installed Haxe to C:\HaxeToolkit and proceeded to install everything else as stated here.
When I opened the command prompt, and typed in the first command, it said that haxe was not a command, so I navigated to the folder containing haxelib (C:\HaxeToolKit\haxe\haxlib) and ran the command from there. It then told me that neko.dll was missing, so I copied the contents of the neko file (in C:\HaxeToolkit\neko) to the haxe folder, which worked.
However, when I came to the command "haxelib run lime setup", it told me:
"'neko' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file."
I haven't been able to get past this. Is there anything that I missed or messed up along the way? I would greatly appreciate help, as I am eager to learn more about game development with HaxeFlixel.
Thanks in advance!

That's not really a proper solution.. You need to make sure that both the
nekocommands are in your system
PATH(to be precise,
C:\HaxeToolkit\haxe). The Haxe installer normally does that, but maybe something went wrong in your case.
C:\HaxeToolKit\nekoboth exist. I unistalled, then reinstalled haxe, then added all the filepaths to user-variables instead of system variables (as I do not have required permissions to change system variables). This worked and I was able to do
haxelib run lime setup. Does this mean that lime is installed and I don't have to run
lime setup windows?
EDIT: So I realized that I had added the filepath
C:\Users\user\HaxeToolkit\haxeallowed me to use the
haxelibcommand. If I follow the same format for flixel, lime, and openfl, my question now becomes, where are the commands installed to (starting from the library folder)?
