vsCode v 1.70.2 - Portable installation
Pro Tools 2022.8.0 ant downgraded to v2022.6.0
I installed the ProTool but can not get it to Work
I Try to start “Show Form Designer”
On v2022.6.0 I get these error
Visual Studio Code
Command ‘PowerShell Pro Tools: Show Form Designer’ resulted in an error (command ‘powershell.showWinFormDesigner’ not found)
On v2022.8.0 I did not get some errors, but nothing happend either.
Thanks for coming here to post about this.
Can you confirm if the PowerShell Pro Tools extension notification (pictured) is green on your end? This indicates that the extension is running normally.
Can you also check to see if PSScriptPad.exe file is located where it should be? It is located by default at
In most cases like this, the resolution ends up being to completely remove the extensions and reinstall.
removed all and Reinstalled “2022.8.0” and I got “Powershell Pro Tools” up in the notification line.
But I can not got the “show Form Designer” to work
I can not find the “PSScriptPad.exe” file - Neither in my vsCodePortable-Folder or in my ProfileFolder
But I have a Warning in My Extension
PS I install from VSIX - And My Server has no internet Connection
PS Now I See in the Notification Line “Downloading Powershell Pro Tools Host…”
But I have no Internet Connection for my vsCode Server
Then I Found these Site: Installation and Licensing - PowerShell Pro Tools (poshtools.com)
And got installed the App too
And it Works
What shal I do with my Lisence.txt file to get the licence in to vsCode ?
