Trying to install Platformio on Visual Studio and it installs OK as Administrator but not as regular user -
Installing PlatformIO Core…
Please do not close this window and do not open other folders until this process is completed.
Failed to install PlatformIO IDE.
This in on a windows 10…
Any suggestions? I’d prefer not to use VS as admin.
Causes of failed installations are often related to antivirus software. Have you tried to disable all AV as a verification? Also, does any other more detailed error pop up? Is the VSCode directory somehow owned by admin maybe?
That was a great thought, still got the same error though. I don’t know… I have it installed on Atom.
I was going to move some stuff over to VS and see how I liked it.
I’m going to uninstall it and start over.
If you still don’t have any luck or get any useful error messages, try opening the Developer Tools (
Help -> Toggle Developer Tools) as soon as possible after opening VSCode, to see if there are any error messages sent to the console there.
