Power Query SDK Error

I'm following the instructions to create a Power BI Query from this page: Using the Power Query SDK - Power Query | Microsoft Learn

In order to see the PowerBI SDK in VS Code, I need to open a folder, so I open an empty folder that will contain what get's built.

When I run the "Create an extension project", all the files get created as documented.  In the output, I see the error below.  I've tried this a couple of times and always get the same error. Is this to be expected?

  • Next I set the credentials and that seems to work and my credentials look like the documented credentials.
  • Next I run the evaluate query and I get the error shown below with an apology.
  • Finally when I copy and use the .mez file in Power BI Desktop, it seems to work.  Why am I getting an error testing in VS Code?  Should I be concerned about these errors?
