I put my path C:\Program Files\Vim\vim90 in the Exec Path and in Exec Flags I put “”+call cursor({line}, {col})" {file}"

and I get the following error/warning, see below

does any one know what I could do to fix this?

 platform/windows/os_windows.cpp:2922 - Condition "ret == 0" is true. Returned: ERR_CANT_FORK
 editor/plugins/script_editor_plugin.cpp:2108 - Couldn't open external text editor, using internal

Is the tail end of your path (the vim90 part) a folder or the VIM executable itself? That should be the entire, qualified name of the executable, ideally including the .exe extension.

If that doesn’t help, what happens if you don’t define the Exec Flags info? Does VIM at least open?
