Has anyone managed to build atom-shell-starter on Windows 8?
I’m on 8.1 (x64) and have all (free) flavours of Visual Studio installed (2010, 2012, 2013), plus 32bit io.js.
Cloning the repo and then running the bootstrap script gives me the following:

If I run
npm install in the root directory then all modules install correctly (which implies that it’s actually doing something different to the script). Running
npm install in the
apm directory gives me build errors on
git-utils, which looks to be caused by them both using
My question is: has anyone else been able to build and run the starter app on Windows, and can you share your magic recipe with me?
Thanks in advance,
