Help with installing packages


Hey, I am new to Atom and I am trying to install packages. It would be great with some help, I put the full error code below when using apm in the command line:

return binding.mkdir(pathModule._makeLong(path),

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, mkdir 'C:\Users\vetle\AppData\Local\Temp;C:\ffmpeg\bin\d-117229-8872-g27k1z'

The error you’re running into looks very much like the errors mentioned in this post:

It looks like a couple of folks were able to get past the error so you might have some luck checking in there with the users that were able to fix things.


I had exactly this same issue and i was able to fix it from and earlier thread @ <Packages not working> Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, mkdir

The basic thing here is just to edit your Environmental variables and TMP and TEMP to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp. This worked for me


Thank you so much for this. It worked finally.

But I would definitely want to why this issue could have risen.
