Can't get 64-bit Atom for Windows 10


I’ve tried via clean installs from the Windows installer at, and by running Atom out of its extracted zip file.

Is there anything else that I can try?



There is an open Issue for this here:

Jan 2015 was a long time ago. I was hoping someone somewhere had come up with a solution since then.


The most recent information in that issue is that the only thing stopping a 64-bit build is a lack of interest in the people who are capable and a lack of capability among the people who are interested.


Unfortunately, I’m in that second group. I’d love to learn how to do it, but I don’t know where to start. Heck, I’d be willing to pay someone to teach me and to answer questions as they come up.
