Any one else have problems with the new installer?


#1

Hey all,

I had Atom 0.147 and before that version it notified me with the squirrel, but since then I got nothing… so I went on the webby and saw the latest version was 0.158! so I used the installer and it didn’t replace my old Atom, still 0.147.

The only way I’ve updated Atom is through atom-windows.zip

any one else getting this weird issue?

Do you have the file `“C:\Users\userName\AppData\Local\atom\Update.exe”``?

Mine was missing due to a squirrel bug and I had the same symptoms as you.


#3

I do indeedy, my machine just doesn’t like any Atom past 0.147 (except zip files)

(though mine’s in C:\Atom\update.exe)


#4

Same here. But I have v0.136.0 and updating not working.


#5

@TreyTaylor, @mnlfischer did you follow the instructions in this blog post to completely uninstall the Chocolatey version of Atom if that is what you were using?


#6

never used Chocolatey.


#7

I didn’t use choclatey, just the zip files.

I don’t have problems with the installer, just as i didn’t install it i could install Atom for first time with the new installer, but today i updated it and it continues creating a new folder for the update…
