Releases for Windows


#1

you can grab Windows builds here (for now):


No Download Link for Windows
Missing cursor when resizing tree view pane (windows)
#2

This is the first one that’s really worked for me. Thanks for this!


#3

first of all thanks for that! Finally load correctly.

  • bug? - for some reason tree view does not work (no sidebar). update: sidebar became visible when i dragged a folder in. guessing it’s a project mode only.

  • where can i install the windows shell? (apm) update: in the bin folder.


#4

apm is included and can be ran from resources/app/node_modules/atom-package-manager/bin/apm.cmd or something similar (relative to where you extracted the zip)

I plan on working on automating this but for now you could add that to your path


#5

Thanks for the share. Now have to learn how to not break any other software builds I have in my system when running this.


Guidance On Platform-Specific Config Defaults
#6

I published a chocolatey package. If you use chocolatey you can now:

cinst atom

More detilas here


#7

Sorry for this stupid question, but can you explain how to launch atom on windows???
I followed instructions and run script\build.cmd
Looks like build was complete - but what should i do then?


#8

I had the same problem. The build script installs to Program Files (x86); there’s an executable binary in there.


#9

Awesome, Thank you for this.


#10

Thanks a lot. :smile:


#11

Thanks for this, it has helped a lot, using my macbook isn’t the best for atom. Prefer to use desktop :smile:


#12

Thank-you. I have to use Windows a lot for work, so now I can take atom out for a proper test-drive.


#13

Why is it so big? 98MB


#14

The build instructions on your fork differ on the path section which is probably why so many have struggled to build on Windows. I was half way to the path you have but I still can’t build as I am behind a firewall that blocks git clone/pull for some reason.

As these instructions have moved in the main repo to a seperate file in docs it might be worth submitting a new pull request to update these.


#15

I’d assume since it includes all the dependencies.

Works fine :smile:


#16

Well, I did get it to compile on my windows7 machine. Not that easy to do, but glad it worked. I am impressed with another great contribution by Github! Thanks! :+1:


#17

I’ve been struggling to build on windows. I think it’s down to a mix of 32bit and 64 bit python/node/os etc.

Does anyone know how to specify 32 vs 64 or is it I am running a 64bit OS so I get a 64 bit build.


#18

@maninsuitcase mine fail at first always! So when I see an error, I solve just that error.

if I see an error like the next one, I ignore if I cannot do an npm install:
npm WARN git config --get remote.origin.url returned wrong result (git://github.com/michaelficarra/cscodegen.git)
I would run npm install cscodegen

Then I do a script/clean followed by the script/build again

rinse and repeat

Once I see the build go through, Done!


#19

Many thanks for providing the windows builds!

Is there any chance to get them as some kind of portable installation?
On my computer at work I have no admin privileges so I am not allowed to install all that Visual Studio stuff.
Atom itself runs fine but I cannot install packages.
