I use Windows and install Atom using Chocolatey.
I have the excellent windows-context-menu package installed, which gives me “Open file in Atom,” and “Open folder ion Atom.”
However, whenever I install an updated version of atom (cup atom), the context menu will still point to the previous version until I open the latest version (and have to run as admin because of UAC).
Also, with a new version, my start menu pinned Atom application points to a new version, so I have to repin it.
So the underlying theme here is that it makes it difficult having a different file path for each version.
Is it possible to have the atom executable in the same path, and have, for example, the lib files etc in a specific version? Maybe a bootstrap atom.exe which checks the current files and looks for files there?
I have also tried mucking around with mklink but to no avail.
