I started getting "select the task to run"

I have been using this product for about 8 months. This is the first time it has be stumped. I have been using arduino for my 3d printer changes to the firmware. Just today i started getting the “select the task to run” when attempting to do a “Build”. This is baffling me to no end. Please advise.


Have you read through this topic? PIO, VSC can't build, no tasks found - #36 by XSRF

Sounds like the same type of problem.

I still do not understand. I see a lot of similar issues. Did VSCode ask you to disable tasks? Do you have extra extensions?

I think so. something about NPM. in order to do a compile, it mentioned something about going to setting, diable tasks or ignore. I did receive an earlier response to go to the following path %user%\AppData\Roaming\Code\User\settings.json

Edit the file and remove the following info.

"task.autoDetect": "off"

I can compile again, but it takes FOREVER to do a build.
