Add your Python.exe path


To be able to run Python scripts in a project folder, you could add one or more Python versions so you could select the version to run your script.











Create a new item and name it Python <version>

Add line: "pythonPath": "c:/path_to_your_python/Python37/python.exe",

Don't forget to add a comma after the closing curly brace

When done, save the launch.json file

Note: If this doesn't work, close and reopen VSCode.
