I have set up the PIO Unified debugger, using an ESP-PROG, to debug ESP32 projects, according to Andreas Spiess’ great Youtube video. When I do “Start debugging” in Visual Studio Code I get the following error message window (I could not attach a screen shot):
Visual Studio Code
Could not find the specified task.
The options are: “Configure task”, “Open launch.json” and “Cancel”.
I have an PlatformIO account and I have added these lines to the platformio.ini file:
debug_tool = esp-prog
debug_init_break = tbreak setup
I have added the drivers for both ports on the ESP-PROG.
My versions are:
VS Code 1.42.1
PlatformIO IDE 1.10.0
Many thanks for your help I checked this and task detect is already “on”, so it has to be something else. Other suggestions, anyone? Does anyone know the name of the task that can’t be found in this case?
