Package display via UI not working with clink enabled


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.



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?
