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.

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"
