# Installing Electron manually for electron-builder

This article tries to resolve an uncommon issue when you encounter the following error and it cannot be resolved automatically, e.g. behind proxy, etc.:

Download the right version (with consideration of package.json) of Electron from https://github.com/electron/electron/releases

Unpack the downloaded Electron and put all files under node_modules/electron/dist.

Create path.txt file under node_modules/electron with the following content:

• Windows: electron.exe
• Linux: electron
• macOS: Electron.app/Contents/MacOS/Electron

Note: Make sure there is no whitespace characters (including a newline character) after the filename. This is a problem that I struggled for minutes and hours.
