Where is the Meteor CLI?

Hi there.

Meteor and Webstorm newb here.

In Webstorm 2016.2's console window, after starting the proxy, Meteor 1.4.1.2. informs me that there is a patch ready that I should apply by typing the line command: meteor update --patch

But when I type this command at the prompt of the console window I get a syntax error.

So it looks like the console window does not accept meteor line commands.

If so, what should I do to find/open the Meteor CLI window inside WebStorm?

If Webstorm does not feature an integrated CLI window, is there a way to apply pacthes inside WebStorm? Or do I need to go outside to do it? At a DOS prompt (I am using Windows 7)? In what folder? The folder where the meteor,bat file is located or the root folder of my project? 

Thanks.

what console window is meant? run tool window?

you can use the built-in terminal (View | Tool Windows | Terminal). See https://www.jetbrains.com/help/webstorm/2016.2/working-with-embedded-local-terminal.html
