I want to add markdown to my tex file and i'm having a really hard time doing so. i've added the package but i keep running into the same error. Here's my setup:

mytex file

And the PDFlatex run command is like so:

    it would be safer to set up a custom command that uses shell-escape, I wouldn't make shell-escape the default for all pdflatex use. It is disabled by default with good reason. – David Carlisle Jun 1 at 19:50

You have to run the document with the shell-escape option:

pdflatex --shell-escape <file>

change the order in your configuration:

pdflatex -synctex=1 --shell-escape -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
