VS Code: OmniSharp server is not running.
I have followed couple tutorials in order to run asp.net on my macbook and I got the version running about 3 months ago. Now I have decided I want to have a another look what has been done.
For my test I have used http://docs.asp.net/en/latest/tutorials/your-first-mac-aspnet.html tutorial.
I have opened run my favourite command
That has run for a while and then I have the filesystem setup with demo application.
Now the command has finished.

Active Version Runtime Architecture OperatingSystem Alias ------ ------- ------- ------------ --------------- ----- * 1.0.0-rc1-update1 mono linux/osx default 1.0.0-rc1-update1 coreclr x64 darwin 1.0.0-rc2-20221 mono linux/osx
Now run uninstall the items you do not need (In my case I was not sure about what, so I have removed all).
dnvm uninstall 1.0.0-rc1-update1
Now I have come across suggestions to run following command
dnvm upgrade -u
This however does not get latest version of the package but only unstable version (This means that it is last build version).
Instead just run stable version unless you want to tinker with latest version.
Finally execute following command in your web directory:
Hosting environment: Production
Now listening on: http://localhost:5000
Application started. Press Ctrl+C to shut down.
This happened to me when using Visual Studio Code in OS X. After typing Cmd + Shift + P and then dnx to Restore Packages, I got "OmniSharp server is not running".
This is most likely because your project.json file has errors. Open the Output console (Cmd + Shift + U) to get more information. Also, look at the errors in the Terminal when it opens. In my case the error was because of a comment in the project.json (using the double slash // which I had to remove). Another error I had was this line:
which I had to change to:
