Unable to evaluate parameters in Juno.@enter debugger

On Windows 10 with Juno 1.40.0 (I think, downloaded via Julia Pro 1.2), I’m trying to use the Juno debugger via Juno.@enter, but I am unable to evaluate the parameters of my function, unlike in the example. The documentation suggests I should be able to do that.

Here’s the function in a .jl file. I use C-<enter> to evaluate the function at the repl.

function f(x, y, z)

I then run Juno.@enter, and the debugger appears to start without trouble, but I get an error when I try to inspect the value of x:

Not sure what’s wrong with my setup. Any idea of where to look?

I experienced the exact same error.
Hope someone can offer a solution.

I also experienced the same error message during debugging, when I try to evaluate code, whichs contain a data frame.

What exact version of JuliaPro are you using?

I’ll try it again soon but when I posted this question. I’d done a fresh install either the same day or at most a day or two before.

The current version of JuliaPro is JuliaPro-1.2.0-1_build-51, with which the debugger works fine for me.

I`m working with JuliaPro-1.2.0-1. Where do I find the build version?

I think you can only find that in the installer’s file name. Just checked with the latest binary for Windows (JuliaPro-1.2.0-1_build-236), and everything seems to be working fine.

I didn’t try it with Julia Pro, but I setup Julia 1.3 with Juno and it’s all working. Best I can guess is that I broke my JuliaPro installation somehow.

In particular I sometimes get stuck installing a package because my internet is slow and sometimes if I cancel in the middle things don’t revert correctly.

The new debugger looks pretty cool, so I’m looking forward to using it.
