Firstly, apologies if this is a duplicate ticket. I’ve looked through the other tickets and none seem to hold an answer to my specific use case, and the solutions in the other threads are not working for me.
I am on Windows 10.
I was using Atom (just writing simple notes in markdown, nothing strenuous) and it suddenly closed itself. When I went to open it again, I found that it was missing from my machine. I now get an error every time I try to reinstall.
I think what has happened is Atom attempted an automated update, uninstalled the previous version then errored on installing the new version, which is how I’ve ended up with no installation. I am attempting to install the latest version directly from https://atom.io (version 1.45.0-beta0 apparently) and this is the error I see directly after starting AtomSetup-x64.exe
Is anybody able to help me get this installed? I’ve tried installing an old version (1.39) and this still does not work. The error log is too large for a single post so I have threaded it below
