No config found for file “FILENAME.ml” in “.”. Try calling `dune build`

Issue

This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by HeapUnderStop

I have installed the Ocaml compiler, dune and opam and followed this set up.
I get the problem notification on VSCode

No config found for file "FILENAME.ml" in ".". Try calling `dune build`.

After following the advice and running dune build in the terminal I get the following error message:

Error: I cannot find the root of the current workspace/project.
If you would like to create a new dune project, you can type:

    dune init project NAME

Otherwise, please make sure to run dune inside an existing project or
workspace.

However I ‘ve already set up a new project pefore as instructed in the quickstart with dune init proj project_name
What am I doing wrong to set up a proper OCaml project with the file and project manager?
