I've update my playwright and when I try to start the UUI mode, I get an error

$ npx playwright test --ui
error: unknown option '--ui' FAIL

has anyone else seen this?

This thread is trying to answer question "Why does the 'npx playwright test --ui' command result in an 'unknown option --ui' error?"

hmmm....I wonder if I'm missing a setting in my playwright.config.ts file

I figured it out. Globally, I had the correct lates version that allowed for the "--ui"

In my repo, it hadn't been updated, so when I activated VS Code, it was grabbing the local version over the global
