Build Robot code Fails - VS on a Mac

I am receiving the following message whenever I try to build robot code in VS

Value ‘undefined’ given for Gradle property is invalid (Java home supplied is invalid)

I have noticed that Java 11 does not put anything into system preferences anymore. When I run echo $JAVA_HOME a blank line appears. Is this a red herring or the root of my problems?

See the other thread on this topic: Setting VS Code java.home (Mac)

I installed the new WPI software and was able to complete a robot code build!
