Go Installation Error

I downloaded Go lang a couple of weeks ago and I still can’t seem to successfully access the program language on my laptop. Every time I call for Go in the Command Prompt it asks me if I want to make changes to my laptop, which I say yes and then I input Go again in the Command Prompt once again, and the same screen pops up asking me to make changes to my laptop. If I say no then I keep getting an “Access denied” message. My end goal is to eventually run Go on Visual Studio. If anyone can help that would be appreciated!

I’m assuming Windows because you mention Visual Studio. The changes are likely to the PATH environment variable. These changes aren’t seen during the lifetime of the command prompt. You need to restart the command prompt. Hope that helps.

Can you run go version on a command prompt outside Visual Studio? Is just the Visual Studio command prompt the problem?
