After taking a fresh clone of the repository, I no longer have issues building ctags (#1950).

Now I am able to build the modules and de-dupe them. Instead I'm getting this error:

Installing language-yaml@0.6.0 ✓
Deduping modules ✓
Running "download-atom-shell" task
>> The system cannot find the path specified.
Aborted due to warnings.
C:\atom [master]>

This is the contents of atom/atom-shell:

C:\atom [master]> ls atom-shell

If I run atom/atom-shell/atom.exe I get this window:

I don't see a log or anything to upload, is there one I'm not seeing?

I was able to build and install a copy of Atom for Windows.

Once script/build finished with an error, I ran:

C:\atom [master]> .\script\grunt install
Running "install" task
Done, without errors.

And could now launch Atom:

Running script\build a second time worked for me.

What was the error when you ran script\build the first time?

My build fails on Running "Install" task. with only Aborted due to warnings. and no other information. When I do .\script\grunt install it gives me the same error. Any ideas of how to get a more useful warning or a solution?

Just did a new clean pull of the repo and started over. Ran .\script\build and failed the first time but finally worked on the second time. :)

@EpicDavi I also encounter this error aborted due to warnings when run install task.
When I run grunt install -v, the terminal tell me more information about this error.
In my situation, there are some modules can't be find and then I reinstall these modules and everything is OK.

So, you also can try it.
