Atom Crashes when trying to use it


#1

Hello,

I have been using Atom for quite some time, but since some time ago, when I open it, it just crashes. I uninstalled it and then installed it again, but without any success. Could you please help. I am using Windows 8.1 (64-bit Operating System). Thanks in advance!

Hello.

Which Atom version do you have installed?
please do not say “newest”… major and minor version numbers is more helpful.

Try to start Atom as follows:
Press WIN + r and type in …

What is the result?


As plan B consider going back to an earlier version of Atom. Please ensure you use an official packages meant for the Windows 64bit operating system.
