The preLaunchTask terminated with exit code {1}

Friends, I need help. I ran into a problem when I installed vscode on my old laptop with Windows 7 x64. The fact is that when I run tasks, I get an error
The preLaunchTask 'task name' terminated with exit code {1}

Here are the steps I took:

  1. Installed node.js and npm
  2. Installed lix using the ‘npm install --global lix’ command
  3. Installed haxe with ‘lix install --gloabll haxe stable’
  4. I downloaded the hashlink virtual machine and registered it in PATH
  5. Installed vscode (user installer), haxe extension and debug extensions
  6. Download and open the project https://github.com/Gama11/HaxeRepro
  7. Through the command palette, launched the ‘lix: Initialize Project’
  8. Launched the ‘HL / JIT (debug)’ task
  9. The project was building, but debugging did not start and I received the error mentioned above.

Despite the fact that I can use haxe in the terminal after these steps, the problem disappears and everything starts to work only when I install haxe not with lix, but with use installer.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.
