Fetching featured packages failed. Windows 10


When I go to install packages, I get the “Fetching featured packages failed” message.
Below it says:
spawn C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe; ENOENT

I’ve check my COMSPEC variable, and it’s C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe. I checked to make sure cmd was there, and it was.
I’m not sure what to do at this point. Any help provided would be great, thanks.


When did this start? Do you have any terminal packages installed? Do they work?


This is a fresh install of atom, just happened today. I haven’t installed any packages for atom besides the preinstalled ones.


Have you tried rebooting?


Yeah. I’ve also tried reinstalling, and neither worked.


It looks like I can install packages through the command line with apm install, but I’m still not sure why it won’t work through atom’s setting view.


I haven’t a clue, myself. Try this, though: download one of the Atom-x64-Windows.zip releases and configure that in portable mode somewhere, and see if that Atom can access cmd.


i am also facing same problem.i think we have to change the path
