I am having a problem with Atom running unders Windows 10.
When either starting Atom directly, or opening a file via the right-click “open with” from the file explorer, Atom fails to open. The following error appears:
If I choose reload, then Atom opens but it still will not load the file, even if I navigate to the file via Atom’s “File | Open file…” menu. (If I do this, I get the exact same error message.) If I choose “keep it open” nothing works and Atom does not display correctly, just being an empty (white background) window.
I tried uninstalling and manually deleting the “.atom” folder from my home directory then reinstalling, however the error still persists. I have tried this with multiple reinstalls and reboots.
Any ideas? The editor was working up until a week or so ago when I last used it. I cannot determine what may have changed.
Running Windows 10 Home, version 1607, and I believe fully patched to date.
