How did you install it? From here: Installing Elixir - The Elixir programming language ? If so, with the installer or scoop?
And what do you mean by “Elixir IDE” in your start menu. There is no Elixir IDE.
May be you’ll have to restart your system and it may work or else you have to set the environment path variable for elixir in windows.
You can google it ** How to set the path and environment variables in Windows**
Is your issue creating files or are you not sure whether Elixir is installed in the first place?
For the latter, open the terminal in VScode and type ‘elixir -v’ and you should get something like the following
PS C:> elixir -v
Erlang/OTP 24 [erts-220.127.116.11] [source] [64-bit] [smp:12:12] [ds:12:12:10] [async-threads:1] [jit]
Elixir 1.13.4 (compiled with Erlang/OTP 22)
You can always just go into your folder using the explorer and make a new file and just call it elixir1.exs btw
yes it worked after restarting it
and yes i am getting this thing after restarting my system
this is what i an getting
PS D:\BE.MECHATRONICS\Elixir> elixir -v
Erlang/OTP 25 [erts-13.0.4] [source] [64-bit] [smp:6:6] [ds:6:6:10] [async-threads:1] [jit:ns]
Elixir 1.14.0 (compiled with Erlang/OTP 25)
I used installer and for IDE i means this thing
