There have been other instances of this issue mentioned both here and in Issues at https://github.com/atom/atom/issues. You may find a solution if you search through them. I’m in between meetings or I would search right now. I’ll check again later.

#5

Could you perhaps just paste in the last few lines of your error log (whatever seems to be the last thing that happened before crashing)?

I am running into the same issue

2015-09-03 22:11:54> Program: Starting Squirrel Updater: --install .
2015-09-03 22:11:54> Program: Starting install, writing to C:\Users\Nicholas.nick-surface\AppData\Local\SquirrelTemp
2015-09-03 22:11:54> Program: About to install to: C:\Users\Nicholas.nick-surface\AppData\Local\atom
2015-09-03 22:11:54> Program: Install path C:\Users\Nicholas.nick-surface\AppData\Local\atom already exists, burning it to the ground
2015-09-03 22:11:54> CheckForUpdateImpl: Failed to load local releases, starting from scratch: System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\Nicholas.nick-surface\AppData\Local\atom\packages\RELEASES'.

The interesting thing is that the directory it’s looking for RELEASES, doesn’t exist during the install. In instead see an actual app-1.0.11, but no RELEASES.

So it seems there was a regression or something introduced maybe around where it looks for the files when it installs? I just pulled down the 1.0.7 version of the AtomSetup.exe and it ran fine without any problems.

I cleared the post and then updated it to point to a Gist instead. More than 10-20 lines of log should typically be posted as a Gist :smile:


#12

okay xd hope get help of this error :(!


#13

Zamalek - have you tried installing an older version of Atom and then updating it once it’s installed? I wasn’t able to get 1.0.11 to install, but I was able to install 1.0.7 and then update to 1.0.11.


#14

yeye :smiley: i made what u said and it worked , thanks so much mate <3


#15

Read all of this and tried, but how do you install an earlier version? Has the Atom homepage changed?

https://atom.io/ Just says for Windows 7 or later.


#16

You go to the releases page and scroll down.
