Using ROOT as a jupyter kernel in VSCode on Windows 11

Hello. I tried to use ROOT C++ as a jupyter kernel in VSCode 1.71.0 on Windows 11 but failed. I’ve successfully installed ROOT v6.24.06 via exe with all the required dependencies, and it operates normally in terminal. It is also comfirmed that ROOT has been added to system PATH. Yet no ROOT kernel is displayed on VSCode kernel list.

However, if I choose to use a remote jupyter server with ROOT kernel, everything’s fine. Also, when I installed ROOT on Ubuntu 20.04, ROOT kernel automatically showed up in VSCode.

What have I missed? Please let me know if you need more information to figure out the problem.


ROOT Version: 6.24.06
Platform: Windows 11
Compiler: Not Provided


I guess @bellenot will give you some hints when he will be back.

Thanks couet, I’ll be waiting.
