Problem with starting up atom. Just instant error


#1

So i installed Atom with the normal installer. And my whole workspace area, where the tabs use to be. Is just a big white space of nothing really.
Console:

index.js:56 Error: EPERM: operation not permitted, open 'C:\Users\50 g.atom\compile-cache\less\40e22529c8729b65e1d700a7ae3f73d57ed1288f\imports.json’

#2

Remove C:\Users\50 g\.atom\compile-cache and try again. If that doesn’t help, then remove the entire .atom folder.

Thank you, that worked perfectly! :slight_smile:


#4

I had the same problem. Make sure the .atom folder is not hidden. If it is, unhide it and Atom should work properly.
