Can't Install Packages (specifically Hydrogen)


Hi I’m a windows user who installed Atom but can’t get it to install Hydrogen (or any other package I’ve tried for that matter). Is this something that is fixable?

I get errors that are something like the one I’ve included below. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Installing “Hydrogen@1.16.0” failed.Hide output…
return binding.mkdir(pathModule._makeLong(path),

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, mkdir 'C:\Users\urban\AppData\Local\Temp;C:\Users\urban\ffmpeg\bin\d-117514-7552-g58xcy.ou1gfzuxr’

I don’t know what the issue is, but there are other people who have experienced this, and some of them have reported being able to fix it.


Ok, that works, I forgot I had to restart after changing the path variables. I’m still a little frustrated because I had to remove another directory from my path.
