Creating Project on PROS on Mac

I have recently installed the latest version of PROS on Visual Studio Code but when I create a project, I get the following error:

ERROR - pros.cli.conductor:new_project - Invalid character found in directory name: ‘/’ - pros-cli version:3.4.2

and the folder I have created is simply called vex on my Desktop.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling PROS, creating other folders in other areas of my laptop, verifying the installation and using the command pros make.

Can anyone help me fix this problem that I am facing? Thanks in advance.

You need to use the integrated terminal for now, we are working on a fix. Here are the steps:

  1. Open vscode in whichever directory you would like the project to be in
  2. Open the PROS Integrated Terminal (accessible from the PROS sidebar)
  3. Run the command pros c n project-name-here
  4. Once the command has finished running and everything is good, in VSCode click File → Open Folder → the newley created project.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We are working on a release that will fix this problem. We hope to have that release out shortly.
