I can’t seem to install the CLI on a windows 10 PC

I downloaded and ran the Windows installer. and followed the directions here

Here is the error I get in powershell when running “particle setup”

PS C:\Users\jham\AppData\Local\particle> particle setup
Program ‘particle.exe’ failed to run: The operation was canceled by the userAt line:1 char:1

You shouldn’t need to cd into the directory where CLI got installed to (try doing it from your %HOMEPATH%)
Also try running particle setup via cmd instead of powershell

Thanks, running from cmd worked !
