Vs Code Errors

I am running WSL2 with Ubuntu-22.04 and all Prerequisite Dependencies are installed as per your instructions here GitHub - toradex/torizon-experimental-torizon-ide-v2-docs: VS Code Torizon Integrated Development Environment Documentation

Hi @SimonBaur !

Have you tried to perform the “Reload Window” command of VS Code?

Also, where did you install the dependencies? On Windows side or in WSL side?

Best regards,

Hi @henrique.tx ,

yes i tried “Reload Window”, restart VS Code or Windows Reboot also did not work.

On the WSL side i installed gnupg, Docker Engine, Docker Compose and Visual Studio Code on the Windows side.

Best regards


please uninstall the extension and make sure to install it in the “WSL remote” environment.

For example type in a WSL terminal:

code .

This will open the VS Code with a connection to WSL, you can check if it’s correct by the label on the footer bottom left:


Now you can install the extension on the WSL environment. Also you will notice that there will now be a button with the label Install in WSL: Ubuntu instead only Install.

Let us know if this works for you,
Best Regards.

Hallo @matheus.castello

your proposed solution does work but i also had to install the VS code WSL extension WSL - Visual Studio Marketplace

So my steps where:

  1. Uninstall the ApolloX extension
  2. Install the WSL extension
  3. Launch vs code from a WSL terminal as you described
  4. Install the ApolloX extension

And then everything worked as it works on linux. Maybe you could enhance your instructions to include this.

Best Regards
