Yesterday, strictly according to the instructions “Redirecting...” downloaded Visual Studio Code, added “platformio-ide”, received an account. After some autoinstallations, I can see on the home page an endless indicator of loading Recent News, although the link to Twitter opens. I apply the screen.
But it is no problem, it is the information, possibly related to the problem. Next, following the instructions, I click New Project, enter its name Hello_World, Arduino Nano Atmega328, the rest by default, press Finish and watch the Wizard with Please Wait … for more than an hour.
I rebooted Windows 8.1, the same thing for 3 hours. At the same time in the task manager, VSC does not have any CPU activity (if its window is minimized), not even network / disk. Tried again today with the same result - there is no error’s reports and no progress.
What to do to identify the cause of the problem?
