TTGO T-Beam can't upload Code

Hello , I’m trying since several days to upload Code to my TTGO T-Beam Board. But I don’t have success.
I have searched in this community and also by Google for a solution.

My Setup:
WIN10
VS-Code/PlatformIO Core 5.2.4 Home 3.4.0
TTGO T-Beam Board T22_V1.1 20210222
T-Beam is connected via USB-Cabel to Computer

My Code is a simple BLINK-Sketch

platform.ini

[env:ttgo-t-beam]
platform =  espressif32
framework = arduino
board = ttgo-t-beam
monitor_speed = 115200

When I hit the Upload-Button this output appears in Terminal

> Executing task in folder 211219-124948-arduino-blink: C:\Users\georg\.platformio\penv\Scripts\platformio.exe run --target upload <

No error is reported, but I miss a progressindicator for flashing the board

When I use the Arduino-IDE I can upload code (without pressing any button)

Maybe there is only a little part missing in my PlatformIO-Setup, but I am still lost.

Problem solved

At an other Notebook I was able to upload Code to my TTGO T-beam board.

Then I removed at my PC (WIN10) in C:\Users\myName the directory .platformio

and started VS Code again, PlatformIO was installed again and now I can uplaod code to TTGO T-Beam-Board.

Best wishes for the New Year
Georg
