WILT: Visual Studio Code default task permissions

I have a workspace in Visual Studio code for my Zettelkasten. Dumping work, project statuses, etc. I have a script that reads through all my MD files, matches the ones that are for projects in Jira, and updates as appropriate.

Suddenly it stopped working. Said I had no tasks, let alone default tasks. When trying to edit the tasks it complained "Unable to write to Folder Settings because no resource is provided." and then opened my task file. Couldn't run any tasks via task runner, but they worked fine copy-pasting the command to terminal


Moved the tasks.json out of the .vscode folder so Visual Studio code could create a new template. Copied my command from the old tasks.json into the new one, and everything worked fine. I'm guessing it's a permission thing? But hey, it works now.
