Hi there. I’m not a professional programmer, but neither a total beginner. Most recently I have been using the stock Arduino IDE and wanted something better for that purpose so here I am in trial mode. I am using Windows 10, 64 bit and a very recent Lenovo laptop and writing code for an Arduino Uno
I installed using the instructions from the following link and all went well:
I setup a project according to the ‘quick-start’ instructions in the following link:
When I now go to open the created project - either through the “Open Project” button on the “Welcome to PlatformIO” screen, or through the “Recent Projects” (which shows my project name, board type and a “Hide / Open” command), I get a message that tells me the project has been “successfully configured” and can be opened with my “Favorite IDE” or the “PlatformIO Run command”.
Well, I thought I WAS in an IDE (whether it becomes my favorite we’ll soon see. ) – and I have no idea how to execute the run command. I find it strange that it shows me a project and gives me an “open” option and then tells me I have to open it some other way.
