Problem with Atom download


Badge +1

Hello,

I’m currently stuck on Week 3 (Module 3 - Become a Power User) “IT Support Specialist” Course.

I’m supposed to download Atom and installed it (on Windows) and I’m not able since I get an erro message.

How do I solve this problem? (Otherwise I cannot go forward with this course)

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi. The courses often suggest a software to make guided exercises;

it is easier to follow if the software is just the same, but sometimes you may find this hard; 

in the case of Code editors, you have other free lightweight alternatives such as Notepad++ or Visual Studio Code or Brackets (Brackets is web-oriented)

feel free to browse >> “ alternative to ()” or “best code editors”

bye

EDIT -- found this post; read carefully your course instructions, are you obliged to istall Atom?

Almost like “I have some error in some system, displaying some message while trying to do something. Can I do something to fix something? Because without it, I cannot continue with something else.” - could you be more specific?
Did you ask in a dedicated discussion forum for this course?
