Hi @Davidson_B 

Do you have Microsoft Visual Studio Code installed? If not, install it (it's free) & try running again. I seem to recall I encountered a similar error (on a Mac) but it ran OK after I installed VSC. VSC is not a dependency but I suspect that installing it fixed some other dependency issue.
