I am creating my first LWC component. While doing so When i run create LWC component command and then enter component name then I am getting an another input saying "There are no entries to pick from" Enter desired directory.

I have tried entering force-app/main/default/lwc, force-app, LWC/force-app/main/default/lwc but nothing in working. enter image description here

My project.json is

  "packageDirectories": [
      "path": "force-app",
      "default": true
  "namespace": "",
  "sfdcLoginUrl": "https://login.salesforce.com",
  "sourceApiVersion": "45.0"

I am running a windows machine.

  • Version of vscode and extension pack ? Also what happens when you just run the command to create the bundle via the cli? Feb 25 '19 at 16:09
  • "sfdx force:lightning:component:create -n mycomponent --type lwc" on running this command error i am getting is "Lightning bundles must have a parent folder named 'lwc'." Feb 25 '19 at 16:31
  • What's the DX plugin version ? Feb 25 '19 at 16:32
  • Run sfdx plugins and see your vesrion Feb 25 '19 at 16:33
  • VS code is v1.19.3 and and while going through Extension i found out that Salesforce extension requires VS code v1.26 and higher. I will update and check again Feb 25 '19 at 16:37

enter image description hereSalesforce extensions pack only work for VS v1.26 and above.

Also for windows user add java runtime environment path. "Java runtime could not be located" when starting VSCode with the Salesforce Extensions

Check for version of java like for me it was "jre1.8.0_181"

"salesforcedx-vscode-apex.java.home": "/Program Files/Java/jre1.8.0_181"
