Why am I getting "no such file or directory" when connecting to Astra for the workshop exercise?

I am not able to connect python or node js to Cassandra despite following all the steps. Error seems to be in directory

gitpod /workspace/cassandra-workshop-series/week3-AppDev-crud/crud-nodejs $ node Ex02_Connect_to_Cassandra.js
========================================
Start exercise

ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/C:/Users/10651748/Downloads/secure-connect-killrvideocluster(2).zip'

The problem you're facing appears to be due to an incorrect path to your Astra secure connect bundle.

In the error message, you've configured it with an incorrect Windows path:

/C:/Users/10651748/Downloads/secure-connect-killrvideocluster(2).zip

In step 3c of the workshop instructions, you needed to upload your bundle to Gitpod. Since you're running on Gitpod, it needs to be a Linux path.

Bettina has explained why it doesn't work in question #6499. Have a look at her answer if you still need assistance. Cheers!
