thanks for posting, now I have an inkling of what may be wrong with my CLI!!!


for some reason, the path to particle.exe seems to be missing.
if i use “particle.exe”
instead of just particle it works.
i have a feeling that if i was in the .particle directory it may work as well.

but i did get node.js cmd prompt and particle-cli to work together

Interesting, I have to say I finally gave in and rolled back to node 8.x which seems to work fine.
