I have installed Visual Studio code and Salesforce CLI(I confirmed in CMD by typing sfdx) but when I start new project in it says"command 'sfdx.force.project.create' not found".

    Can you specify your operating system , cli version and vscode version and Salesforce vscode extension version Jul 28, 2019 at 1:24
  • It looks like, you have a period after sfdx. It should be a space.

  • When you say, "start a project", do you mean typing it in the command line? Or do you mean using the command palette? Have you tried both?

Its not dot .. It should be colon :.

cd path/to/your/sfdx/projects sfdx force:project:create --projectname MyLWC cd MyLWC

    sfdx.force.project.create is vscode extension command .Looks like vscode extension is not getting activated. Jul 28, 2019 at 13:19

You can use the command palette (Ctrl+shift+P or command+shift+p) which often helps avoid typos from the command line. Command Pallette
