VScode - can't debug

I’m trying to debug the simple arduino led blinker sample with a bluepill (and blackpill) with an stlink v2 clone but when I try to start the debug session nothing happens (fresh install of PlatformIO and VSCode)

my platformio.ini

platform = ststm32
framework = arduino
build_type = debug
debug_tool = stlink
upload_protocol = stlink

board = bluepill_f103c8
board_build.mcu = stm32f103c8t6
board_build.f_cpu = 72000000L

board = blackpill_f401cc
board_build.mcu = stm32f401ccu6
board_build.f_cpu = 84000000L

The blinker sample works (the upload works through stlink, led blinks)

The PlatformIO IDE installation or its Python interpreter seem to be currently broken, there’s a currently investigated issue at Debugging does not start · Issue #2925 · platformio/platformio-vscode-ide · GitHub. It’s not just you.

Thanks, I added my info to the issue, maybe it helps

Please update the PlatformIO IDE extension to the latest version. Does it work now?

Yes, it works now, thanks
