Having trouble downloadinb to windows 10


#1

when i attempt to download i get to the download screen with the rocket, a pop-up that says, installation failed, error while installing application, check setup log for more information and contact the author. open setup log via button on popup gives me the squirrel setup file in notepad, which i am sure the staff or users are familiar with, as i cant upload in this post without exceeding limit
is there something i can fix on my end or do i have to wait for a fix on your end?

Please report the Issue on https://github.com/atom/atom/issues so it can be properly tracked.

Maybe your browser is set to run files as soon as they downloaded (which is, IMHO, a bad option).
You can follow the Other platforms link, currently at https://github.com/atom/atom/releases/tag/v1.3.2
There, you can right click on the AtomSetup.exe link, to download it without running it.
Then you can try and run it.
Maybe separating the steps can help.

Note: I can install Atom on Win10 without issue, except an issue with spell-checking: https://github.com/atom/spell-check/issues/67
