It's possible that you may get some errors when installing the Learn IDE. Here are the first steps you should take to try and get the install working:

  1. If you have an anti-virus software enabled, try disabling it to install the Learn IDE. We've seen some issues with McAfee especially.
  2. (Windows Only) If you're re-installing or updating the Learn IDE, there might be some old data that you need to manually delete first. It's usually stored at C:\Users\#{username}\AppData\Local\Temp. You need to move the Temp file into the trash. If you don't find the Temp file there, then you can check and make sure this is the correct location by opening up your command prompt (go to the start menu and search for cmd) and pasting in: rd /s /q %LOCALAPPDATA%\temp. This sill show you the location of the Temp file that you need to remove.
  3. Try installing the Learn IDE again.

If these steps did not help, fully uninstall the Learn IDE one more time. Now we'll need to follow the steps to manually install the Learn IDE from Atom. Don't worry if you don't know what this means, we'll walk you through it here!
