Hello, I search high and low but couldn't figure out the problem. so here I am! I'm new to Julia. I am using Windows11 and Julia 1.9
The problem I am having is when I click on the "Start Server" button in the extension I get this error:
Rene@DESKTOP-Rene MINGW64 ~/.vscode/extensions/geniebuilder.geniebuilder-0.4.11/scripts $ julia --startup-file=no --depwarn=no c:\Users\Rene.vscode\extensions\geniebuilder.geniebuilder-0.4.11\scripts/rungb.jl ERROR: SystemError: opening file "C:\Users\Rene\.vscode\extensions\geniebuilder.geniebuilder-0.4.11\scripts\UsersRene.vscodeextensionsgeniebuilder.geniebuilder-0.4.11scripts\rungb.jl": No such file or directory
If I run this code code manually I have no problems in starting the server:
$ julia --startup-file=no --depwarn=no c:\Users\Rene.vscode\extensions\geniebuilder.geniebuilder-0.4.11\scripts/rungb.jl
I noticed this... like its adding the directory twice? How do I fix this or better yet, where is the Start Server code?
ERROR: SystemError: opening file "C:\Users\Rene\.vscode\extensions\geniebuilder.geniebuilder-0.4.11\scripts\UsersRene.vscodeextensionsgeniebuilder.geniebuilder-0.4.11scripts\rungb.jl": No such file or directory
welcome to the community @Craz3Coyote
Can I ask how you had installed Julia? The recommended method is to use juliaup ... which can be installed from github (https://github.com/JuliaLang/juliaup) . These are the instructions for installing Genie Builder https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=GenieBuilder.geniebuilder which include the recommendation to use juliaup (scroll near the bottom).
I use Linux... but I installed julia without using juliaup, and it caused me a lot of headaches trying to make it julia / Genie Builder work with VSCode. VSCode always seemed to use a different PATH for it's terminal that my system PATH... and I had even changed the PATH in VSCode terminal, but it is not persistent. I had also confirmed the environmental variable for the Julia Path in VSCode Settings. It was a mess... until I finally used juliaup.
Here is a link to my original post, in case my experience would help you to get your system configured the right way https://discord.com/channels/774897545717219328/1122522135550758932
Then you just have to learn to drive Genie Builder 👍 and everything will work out.
OK, I figure it out. My default program had changed to Bash for some reason. I just changed it to CMD and it worked. I did change to Juliaup however. Thanks for the help! I did learn a few more things on VSCODE. 👍
