luxor on windows 10 - "The system cannot find the file FileIO.filename"

Hi All

Im using julia 1.01 on windows 10. When I look at the luxor tutorial, the first example and others, I get error from windows about not being able to find “file FileIO.filename”
I suspect this is a windows issue. The same code in Jupyter works.

So: when I run the code below I get pop up windows saying “… cant find FileIO.filename” followed by text.

julia> using Luxor

julia> @png begin
           text("Hello world")
           circle(Point(0, 0), 200, :stroke)
The system cannot find the file FileIO.filename.
ERROR: failed process: Process(`'C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe' /c start FileIO.filename`, ProcessExited(1)) [1]

Looks like the interpolation of the filename is incorrect

Ok, so the files are being produced and if I replace “FileIO.filename” with the actual file name the command works. So it looks to me like a bug in Luxor on windows 10.

BTW I just installed luxor on windows and it works for me fine.

Maybe you need to update your packages…

Another graphics package is Compose.jl:
