Update to 1.6 broke powershell alias



I just noticed that atom updated to 1.6. I found this out when I went to run atom . and received an error Access is denied. I’m logged in as an administrator and I also have powershell configured to always run as administrator as well as the atom.cmd file.

Here’s my profile config for the alias:

Set-Alias atom C:\Users\<myadminuser>\AppData\Local\atom\bin\atom.cmd

Again, I’ve never had this problem until today. Any suggestions on how to correct the error?

EDIT: I know some people use the path to update.exe with the processStart flag. I personally found that to lock up the powershell window from which I executed the atom command.
