I am totally new to Visual Studio Code, and I just installed it in order to the install plantUml.

I followed online directions to install both, and now it won't work as expected because I get the error "No Dot Executable Found.  Cannot find Graphiz."

Since I have never used VS Code before, I have no idea what to do to fix this.

I have tested it with known good PlantUML code and I still get this error.
