Ask questionsEISDIR: illegal operation on a directory, read error when trying to REMOTE-SSH
I am using VS Code insider 1.35.0 and I was trying to get Remote Development to work, and I accidentially modified a config file and now when I hit F1 and choose "REMOTE-SSH" I get the following error:
EISDIR: illegal operation on a directory, read
I don't recall exactly which file was modified. Is there ANY way to recover from this? I tried uninstall VS Code, rebooting, and re-installing and I still get the same error. Is there any way to start over from scratch?

I had set an absolute path as a user variable, and that was causing the problem. I was able to fix it, but I think VS Code could be made to be more robust to such problems.
