Hi guys, I am learning the ROS2 on Windows by the tutorials. I meet an error "OSError: [WinError 193] %1" when running "ros2 run rqt_console rqt_console", and the detail output is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "E:\dev\ros2-eloquent\ros2-windows\Scripts\ros2-script.py", line 11, in <module> load_entry_point('ros2cli==0.8.7', 'console_scripts', 'ros2')()

File "c:\python37\lib\subprocess.py", line 1207, in _execute_child startupinfo)
OSError: [WinError 193] %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Any answer and idea will be appreciated!

I have the exact same problem in the tutorial (new to ROS), no clue how to fix it but I was able to get around it by going into a cmd terminal and opening rqt. Then in the toolbar I clicked "Plugins" > "Logging" > "Console". I was able to complete the tutorial that way. Hope that helps!

I found the same problem, rqt_console.exe is not there. I built from scratch and still not there.

Same error here. Seems a bug fix was added a week ago; waiting for release. More details here: https://github.com/ros-visualization/...
