Can't install packages


I am trying to install a package (Hydrogen) but I can’t, because I get this error:

It does this when I try to install other packages, it gives me the same error. The only packages I have installed are the default ones that come with Atom. I am on Windows 10 64-bit.


Hi @jordanbaron, can you try installing the Atom Beta and see if that helps? The beta version has a lot of improvements concerning package installation.


I tried it, but it still doesn’t work :expressionless:


What version of VisualStudio do you have installed and do you have a GYP_MSVS_VERSION environment variable set?


I have the latest version of Visual Studio and I am unsure what GYP_MSVS_VERSION is


It’s an environment variable that the node-gyp package relies on. If you don’t have it set, you need to (if you have VS 2015, set it to 2015).


I did that and it doesn’t work. I’ve basically tried everything.


So you’re giving up? Because you’ve stopped offering information, and nobody here can help you figure out what’s wrong without information.
