Unable to open PIO Home os VS Code


#1

I keep getting this error every time I launch VS Code

Unable to open ‘PIO Home’: Could not start PIO Home server: Error: timeout.

I have installed both PlatformIO and PlatformIO IDE extensions, still get the same error.

In the VS Code integrated terminal when I type pio home, I get the following error:

C:\Users\DELL>pio home

Please try to uninstall Python, remove C:\Users\DELL.platformio\penv folder, install the latest Python and start IDE. All should work.
