(solved) Cannot get Things to show up in VScode extension

Hello everyone,
sorry to bother you all… i am an absolute beginner trying to navigate installation of OH.

I am stuck trying to have the VScode extension show Things as described in the VScode github page.
System is Windows 10 home, OH 21.5.10, installation on localhost
I get up to the following screen only

This is what I tried so far:

  • I have followed the installation steps of the page https://www.openhab.org/docs/installation/windows.html
  • I have added REST documentation in addons
  • in the VScode extension, this is the current configuration (probably messy, but some of this stuff I have no clue about yet… and I have tried hours so far so things built up):
"openhab.host": "",

“openhab.port”: 8080,
“workbench.iconTheme”: “openhab”,
“openhab.remoteLspEnabled”: true,
“openhab.useRestApi”: true,
“openhab.sitemapPreviewUI”: “basicui”,
“openhab.karafCommand”: “ssh openhab@%openhabhost% -p 8101”,
“openhab.paperPath”: “”

in output window of the VScode environment, if I select openHAB extension, I get the following message:
openHAB vscode extension has been activated
Not sure what else I should do :pensive:

Any suggestion what to try next?
Thanks for your help in advance

never mind guys, I got it finally working :grinning: Not sure how, though
