I'm having trouble getting VS Code to recognize any MavensMate tasks in my initial testings. I definitely have the MM desktop app installed and a working project for it (I've been using MM and Sublime up until now).

For example, open a MM project

Error: command 'mavensmate.openProject' not found

What am I missing to get this working?


I just experienced this problem myself on Windows. I resolved it by updating the VS Code path in the Mavensmate Desktop Settings (gear icon in the upper-right).

The path that worked for me was: C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft VS Code\\Code.exe

  • This worked for me. Although I had to restart my computer though since MavensMate was running in the background. – dana Jul 17 '17 at 17:47
  • What path will work for the VS Code "executable" in macOS? – John_Henry Jan 4 '19 at 15:32

Looking at the GitHub issues list, looks like this is a known issue from a couple of months back, so hoping devs can resolve it soon.


For anyone who comes across this question but is on macOS, you'll likely need to set this to "/Applications/Visual Studio Code.app/Contents/MacOS/Electron"
