    It seems that your computer isn't convinced that you have installed the CLI though. Have you verified your CLI install?

Please ensure salesforce CLI environment variable is set. If not go to set an environment variable in your system. Once set the environmental variable restart your device.

  • Salesforce CLI installed path variable like this "C:\Program Files\Salesforce CLI". Commented Aug 26, 2019 at 7:28

It was a Product Issue as explained in Post https://github.com/forcedotcom/salesforcedx-vscode/issues/383 Please check this once before you spent days on fixing this like me. Hope it saves times for other.


For me the issue was I had a space in folder path and that is why it was complaining. c:\Users\Salman Zafar\EnvironmentName

Once I removed spaces in the path it worked. c:\EnvironmentName.
