Steps to the Reproduce:
When I run it, I get the following error:
The environment “IronPython|2.7-32” appears to be incorrectly configured or missing.
You may need to install it or create a virtual environment
I went to VS Installer, Individual Components tab, Compilers section, and checked on the Python 2.7 & 3.6 selections, but I’m still getting the problem
You need to set up the IronPython 2.7 environment*.
*Currently you cannot do it through the Visual Studio Installer (there isn’t an IronPython Package option to install).
Hopefully, Microsoft will patch this in the future.
Download the msi file for IronPython from Github. Then copy the path where it is downloaded and add it to the path in the system environment variable. Then restart visual studio. Select the project and set the python environment to IronPython.
When switching from Python 3.8 to 3.9 I came across the same error (also with pylint). I simply edited the project.pyproj (xml) file from:
This is Jan 2023, I am using Visual Studio Community 2022, I only needed to follow this,
then set the version of Python I am using as a default environment.
Did not need IronPython.
