I’ve recently started working with the MXChip 3166 and Azure IoT. While following the “Connect IoT DevKit AZ3166 to Azure IoT Hub” instructions (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-hub/iot-hub-arduino-iot-devkit-az3166-get-started ), I couldn’t get the Arduinio Board Manager software to run from within Visual Studio Code.
Whenever I tried to run the Arduino: Board Manager in VS Code, the Visual Studio Code settings would open instead of the Board Manager menu.
No directory was found under C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Arduino even though the Arduino software was installed.
Download and install the Arduino IDE for Windows software instead of the Windows Store app version. https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
Once the software downloads, you can check the details.
After the installation completes, restart Visual Studio Code. The software should run as expected.
