If Julia is not added to the PATH environment variable of your system, then you need to provide the Julia installation path manually.

Before VSCode and its Julia extenstion you need to install Julia itself from

I suggest using juliaup to install Julia, it will automatically setup your path as required. If you already installed Julia, uninstall it and reinstall it with juliaup.
