I installed Atom on Windows 8.1 (64bit) using Chocolatey, and made sure it is the most up-to-date version. I tried installing a few packages using APM in Git Bash (which does not recognize APM as a command). Thankfully it was recognized on command prompt, so I used that, and got a
gyp error. Which is unsettling, since I am a Node.js developer and already have Visual Studio, Git, Python 2.7 etc. installed. So I tried using the
settings menu inside Atom itself to install packages, and I’m still getting the
gyp error. So I re-installed everything, Atom, Chocolatey, Git, Visual Studio, Node, Python, even Github for Windows, and tried the whole process again and I’m still getting the errors. I am running in Administrator mode. The
gyp errors themselves are not helpful (this is the entirety of the error trace):
What can I do from here, to ensure everything works as it should? Is there a way to see a more helpful error trace?
