Packages error


#1

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: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/windows_10-update/system-file-check-sfc-scan-and-repair-system-files/bc609315-da1f-4775-812c-695b60477a93, but I’m not a Windows 8 expert (I avoided it as much as possible).
