VS code debugger fails

Hi there
From the “Welcome to Particle Workbench Development Workflow” I can’t compile or flash my code to Argon.
From .ino editor I can do both.
When I try the debugger, it flashes the code successfully but the Visual Studio Code returns a fail message:

Failed to launch OpenOCD GDB Server: Timeout.

Thanks for any help

Have you read this thread? Your problem sounds very similar:

Thanks a lot
So, do I need the Particle HW debugger module to have the Workbench debugger working?
