Trouble booting from atom

i'm getting this error message

t> : error:
Could not find module `Sound.Tidal.Context'
It is not a module in the current program, or in any known package.

Variable not in scope: tidal_version :: [Char]**

Can you paste here the whole console print?

Using default GHC system path definition
Ghci command: ghci
Ghc-pkg command: ghc-pkg
Start atom-tidalcycles plugin
Load BootTidal.hs from C:\Users\leann.atom\packages\tidalcycles\lib\BootTidal.hs

Seems like tidal is not installed...
Try the first two chapter of the troubleshooting page:

thank you! i got an error message after following the instructions, apparently that means i should try to install the full haskell platform (i was sure i already tried this before). i'm going to try again and report back.

okay, i tried reinstalling everything after reinstalling haskell:
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> cabal update

cabal install tidal
Downloading the latest package list from hackage.haskell.org
cabal.exe: Could not read index. Did you call 'checkForUpdates'?
cabal.exe: Could not read index. Did you call 'checkForUpdates'?

i then tried the fix here: https://forum.toplap.org/t/trouble-launching-tidal-in-atom/678/3
but continued to get the same error after cabal install tidal

I think you should run cabal update then cabal install tidal

it looks like i get the same errors that way:
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> cabal update
Downloading the latest package list from hackage.haskell.org
cabal.exe: Could not read index. Did you call 'checkForUpdates'?
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> cabal install tidal
cabal.exe: Could not read index. Did you call 'checkForUpdates'?

Here are people with the same problem: https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/5574

It seems something is corrupt but that link should help find which files you need to delete.

thank you!! i actually managed to get it working by just making sure haskell was completely uninstalled, once i reinstalled it after that it was all smooth sailing.
