I am unable to build the Atom text editor on Windows 8.1 Update 1.
I keep getting these messages;
gypnpm ERR! email@example.com install: `node-gyp rebuild` npm ERR! Exit status 1 npm ERR! npm ERR! Failed at the firstname.lastname@example.org install script. npm ERR! This is most likely a problem with the runas package, npm ERR! not with npm itself. npm ERR! Tell the author that this fails on your system: npm ERR! node-gyp rebuild npm ERR!

Anybody know how I can resolve this issue? I really want to build Atom on Windows as I don’t have a Mac nor a Linux machine.
P.S. It would be a lot better if Atom was already available as a native download for Windows so I don’t have to build the darn thing.
P.S.S. I already tried using a pre-built Windows build but nothing would work. It wouldn’t even update.
