After installing Atom (latest version from the Atom.io site) for Windows 10 64 bit, the install of all packages is failing.
After a lot of investigation, I believe that it is a problem with folder permissions that were set when Atom was installed or when the APM creates directories at installation time.
It seems that the c:\users<username>\AppData\Local\Temp folder has been given Read Only privileges that is causing the installation to fail. I forced deleted the TEMP directory and it was re-created with RO privileges at the next install.
Because of this, installation of packages from apm (command line) is failing with a message:
EPERM: operation not permitted , lstat 'C:\users<username>\AppData\Local\Temp… ’
with what appears to be a randomly generated directory under it.
I have forced deleted the Temp directory and tried to reinstall a number of times with the same error.
I have manually created an empty Temp directory and during the install process, all the directories that are created under it are created with Read Only privs.
This problem occurs when Atom is in both safe and regular mode.
I have Atom and the packages I need installed on Mac and Linux. They just will not install on Windows 10 (32 and 64 bit). I also can not confidently say that Atom did a clean install but I can get it up and running.
Yes – the user (me) is an administrator
Not sure where to go from here after about 5 hours of noodling around trying to figure out what is going on.
Help?? Ideas ??
