Perhaps he downloded the zips from github? Then they would be named “app-master.zip” “dashboard-master.zip” etc by default and need the “-master” removed during extraction or renamed after, much like when Arduino Libs like emonlib and jeelib are downloaded rather than cloned. The module folder name must be 100% right since it is part of the url/path.
Yes, he confirms this in his post above.
I wanted to clarify, to ensure that there wasn’t a problem that we were not aware of, as Windows users are in the minority, especially Windows 7…
Github desktop just works - rather good, surprisingly (well less so since M$ bought GitHub). Is not as fully featured as the command line, but you can drop to command line any time as it has installed git behind the GUI.
