I hope you are doing well as you receive this message, I am just reaching out because I recently tried installing the Platformio extension and had an error.
Here is the error message I am receiving:
I have never had an issue installing Platformio before on different devices.
I did not know at all what any of these errors meant, so I just found the files that were related to platformio and VS Code all together from my C drive, then reinstalled everything from scratch. After manually deleting all files and folders, and reinstalling VS Code/Platformio, everything began to work.
Maybe there is an easier way to do this but I do not know how to do so.
