ERROR: IOError: could not spawn `C:Program FilesMicrosoft VS CodeCode.exe`


I’m using Julia 1.0.3 with VS Code and the plugin 0.11.1 on Windows 10 and
trying to run simple commands from a tutorial.

When I run this:

julia> @edit max(1,2)

I get this error:

ERROR: IOError: could not spawn `C:Program FilesMicrosoft VS CodeCode.exe 'C:\Users\joe\AppData\Local\Julia-1.0.3\bin\..\share\julia\base\promotion.jl'`: no such file or directory (ENOENT)

It seems to be related to the path but it’s strange because Julia is working, if I write other commands they are recognized and work well.

What do I need to do?

My settings say:

Julia: Executable Path
Points to the julia executable.

I have also tried unsuccessfully with

That is a bug. Fix is ready. Thanks for reporting!
