Julia Language Server keep crashing, even after reinstall

I hope this is the right place to post this, but recently vscode has become almost unusable because of how often the language server crashes and has to restart. I’ve already uninstalled julia and vscode, and deleted ~/.julia, ~/.config/Code, and ~/.vscode, reinstalled latest versions, and still the problem persists. Here is section of the language server output. It’s basically this over and over again:

[ Info: Received new data from Julia Symbol Server.

Side question: would it be okay if I posted this as an issue to the vscode github? Not sure what the procedure is in this scenario.

How did you get this error output? I’ve been having the crashing problem as well…

At the top of the terminal at the bottom of the screen there are tabs labelled “PROBLEMS OUTPUT TERMINAL DEBUG CONSOLE”. Choose OUTPUT, and select “Julia Language Server” from the drop-down in the top-right of the terminal panel.

Is there any update on this issue? I have the same after a fresh install on Windows 10 Enterprise. I recently switched to a new computer, didn’t have any issues at all on my previous Windows 10 Enterprise computer…

This specific issue should be fixed now. Can you paste the stacktrace of the stackoverflow you’re getting here?

Ah yes, I see now, this seems to be a different issue. Here is the output from the Julia Language Server in the terminal:

[Info  - 12:35:20] Connection to server got closed. Server will restart.

[Info  - 12:35:20] Connection to server got closed. Server will restart.

[Info  - 12:35:21] Connection to server got closed. Server will restart.

[Info  - 12:35:21] Connection to server got closed. Server will restart.

[Error - 12:35:22] Connection to server got closed. Server will not be restarted.

I just reinstalled the Julia extension and it seems to work now, so you can ignore my issue. Sorry for bother unnecessarily but thanks for replying so quickly!

[edit] Actually the issue does persist. When I reinstall the extension it seems OK but then when I close and restart VSCode I have the same again. I try to start the REPL, but then I get this message that the Julia Language server crashed 5 times in the last 3 minutes and will not be restarted again.
