Were you using the VS Code text editor? I right clicked the breakfast.js file and selected "Open in Terminal". That didn't work.

When I run "node promises-breakfast.js" Inside of the terminal that comes with VS Code, it returns "'node' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

How exactly did you go about extracting breakfast.js?

Hello! It is throwing an error because the promises-breakfast.js file is not located in the root directory. The file is located in the js file.

Just write node js/promises-breakfast.js into your command line OR type cd js which will move you from the root directory and into the js file and then type node promises-breakfast.js.

Daven Hietala Hi :] My solution was to extract the breakfast.js file from the the folder and run the code, and it worked!

You need to go into your js folder.

In the workspace, just type: cd js

Now you can run: node promises-breakfast.js

Hope it help.

**UPDATE* I got it fixed by extract this file from the js file how i can run it if it was on the file?

Sorry for the rant. More precisely, what did you do to get promises-breakfast.js to run with node?
