How can I execute the apm command. Running windows 8
If it’s not in your path env variable, you’ll probably have to go into the directory, depending on where your atom is installed:
C:\Program Files\Atom\resources\app\apm\node_modules\.bin and then run your apm commands from a command line there.
Oh thank you so that is why it wasn`t working. Ill just cd for now and then add it to my PATH variable later. Thank you
EDIT: Went to the following directory
C:\Program Files (x86)\Atom\resources\app\node_modules\.bin but it gives me the following error when performing the apm command
C:\Program Files (x86)\Atom\resources\app\node_modules\.bin>apm 'apm' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file
Ah sorry, try this one:
It should contain files like
node.exe, which is what apm uses, and
When install or just running apm, it says :
The system cannot find the path specified
installing linter: ‘apm install linter’
Can you add a screenshot of the command window when you’re executing this?
Also a print of your path variable maybe.
This answer is out of date yet at the top of Google search results. apm.cmd can now be found in
%LOCALAPPDATA%\atom\bin. Add this to your path or cd to that directory and execute
After installing on Windows 7 with the .exe installer, my path is
when I cd to that location, I can run apm
That of course is only for that one version, if you add the path @Zoltu mentions above to your PATH variable, then restart your command window, you should be able to use
apm for whatever is the latest version.
The operating system I use is Windows 7 64-bit. The version of Atom is 1.30.0, I installed it and reinstalled it and I still have the same problems, when I run that line it says “syntax error”
