Packages error


Hi. I’m not good in English and actually newbie in programming so sorry for my mistakes.

I just opened Atom and i wanted to change my theme. When i opened “themes” i founded this error (maybe it’s not an error): “Fetching local packages failed.Hide output…
spawn C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe ENOENT”. I opened “C:\Windows\system32” but didnt found cmd.exe. Screenshot is uploaded.

P.S. I’m using windows 8.1 and latest version of Atom.
P.S.S. I’m using my computer not often so i can’t answer quicly.


It sounds like cmd.exe got moved or deleted. You should try to download it again and put it back in the system folder.


cmd.exe is a core Windows program. Unless you get it straight from Microsoft I wouldn’t trust a downloaded version.
I think you can restore it by following these directions:, but I’m not a Windows 8 expert (I avoided it as much as possible).
