Help with this error- can't upload to esp32

This is persistent. I tried varying all the conditions I can think of.
I got some .ini stuff from a website about using the ESP-Prog. That’s the problem, isn’t it?

That’s a MacOS serial device name while your backtrace indicates you’re on Windows. Remove the “upload_port = …” Line in the platformio.ini and retry.

Thank you.
Are you aware of a hand-holding debugging aid?
I need to know exactly what to put in .ini.
Then I need an authoritative pin map for the ESP-Prog.

That MacOS code comes from the best narrative description I found of the ESP-Prog. I don’t think I need to specify a port. My sense is that PIO will find the ESP32 stuck to the ESP-Prog.
That page instructed me to make a bifurcated .ini file, which would result in a second build., the debug build. Those instructions made everything not work, so I switched back.

Given that hand-holding on .ini and pins, I should be able to follow PIO’s prompts. I’m going to put the red dot everywhere, because I’ve never seen what goes on under the hood. I want to deepen my understanding.
