Vscode extension builds failing: "Exit code: 3221225781"

Recently vscode 1.42.0 became available, since then I’ve been seeing the following failure:

$ npm test --silent
Downloading VS Code 1.42.0 from https://update.code.visualstudio.com/1.42.0/win32-archive/stable
Downloaded VS Code 1.42.0 into .vscode-test/vscode-1.42.0
Exit code: 3221225781

The command "npm test --silent" exited with 1.

Prior to this release, everything worked fine. Both my builds for linux and Mac work. I have since updated my configuration to use 1.42.0, but this didn’t help. Any help or advice welcome.

3221225781 is 0xC0000135 which is STATUS_DLL_NOT_FOUND.

I’ve had the most success diagnosing DLL problems with procmon, running it in background then uploading the trace to my server for analysis.

Other that that, can’t say anything with the information given.

You are also probably doing yourself a disservice suppressing output with --silent, it might contain useful hints. For starters, it’s not even clear what exactly exits with that code.

Okay, thanks. I’ll try removing the silent flag to see if any more useful info gets displayed.
