Could not find the package with requirements for your system 'windows_amd64'

sorry, I’m a complete noob to platform IO and don’t really use visual studio code much.

I’m using a NodeMcu v3 and trying to load it with

when I try to build the source code I get a bunch of errors :

I figured this is to do with the packages so I tried to add them manually.

pio platform install framework-arduinoespressif8266 2.20402.4
pio platform install tool-espotapy 1.1.3
etc.

but I get the error
Could not find the package with requirements for your system ‘windows_amd64’

As I mentioned this is VsCode, Running on windows 10 home. I’ve installed python, Arduino IDE, and platform IO extension.

What am I missing?

I’m on Windows 10 x64 and this compiles when I clone it and change this line

to just !python .get_version.py

since on my system, python is Python3 and python3 does not exist as a command.

After that I get

>pio run -e nodemcuv2

So I’d suggest you do

  • Open a PlatformIO CLI and do a pio upgrade --dev to do a core upgrade. Restart VSCode after.
  • Check in PIO CLI that python3 --version return a Python3 version – if command fails, change python3 invocation as indicated above
  • Check that sub-dependencies like git (https://git-scm.com/downloads) and npm (https://nodejs.org/en/download/) are installed (I have 2.29.2 and 6.14.8 respectively). Restart VSCode after installing, if those were missing.
  • Check if disabling Antivirus makes a difference, if in doubt.

Thanks.
I’d tried most of that, the thing I hadn’t tried or known was an issue was node.
It just finished compiling.
Thanks your your quick response!
