Blink install error under Julia v1.0.2 on Windows


#1

upgrade to Julia v1.0.2 yesterday; today was going to try out Blink…added it via pkg, then tried the second install step:

julia> Blink.AtomShell.install()

and I get this error:

ERROR: IOError: could not spawn 7z x electron-v2.0.5-win32-x64.zip -oatom: no

Any advice greatly appreciated!
