Package display via UI not working with clink enabled


#1

Hi there,

on Windows, if you have installed clink, then the fetching of featured (install section of settings) as well as installed (packages section of settings) does not work.

The error message I get is

The system cannot find the path specified.

However, using apm I can both retrieve featured and installed packages.
When I uninstall the clink hook, everything works fine again.

Does anyone have a clue what might be going on here? Unfortunately there’s not much more output that I can post here.

If you have any further questions, please ask.

Thanks.

It’s probably best if you open an Issue on the settings-view package. Also, when you do could you give the following information?

  • Which version of Atom are you using?
  • What OS and version are you running?
  • Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting using atom --safe?
  • Do you know anything about how clink works? Does it replace the COMSPEC environment variable? Something else?
