Install application in same folder?


I have a weird corporate system that blocks applications in the program directory and atom seems to run from the appData directory in windows ( I assume this comment is wrong ) but what would i need to do to run it in c:/allowedFolder ? would I have to install from source and edit the installation directorates ? would this cause other issues with installing a packages?

Is there a tutorial for this ?


Download either the x64 or normal version of from here and run it as a portable app and you should be fine.


Here is the Installing Atom in Portable Mode section of the Atom Flight manual. I hope that helps :slight_smile:
