Installing packages not working on Windows 8.1 with v0.166.0


#1

I’m seeing pretty pretty much the same issue as this person, but I never installed Atom with Chocolatey which seems to have been the problem for some people.

Please let me know if I can provide any more information, but, really the logs in that issue are pretty much exactly what I have, and I’ve even tried setting the GYP_MSVS_VERSION Environment variable on the system level…

Sorry for being dense. Do you get an error that it can’t find git, or do you get an error that git doesn’t find the https helper?

I have an idea how to go about the git problem, but I have no idea about the https helper one.

I’m not going to lie @kgrossjo, I’m not seeing this issue anymore, which is really strange but convenient! My error logs looked exactly the same as the GitHub issue comment I posted earlier. I don’t know what I was doing differently.

I do appreciate your response!
