Thanks for the extra info!
state run code1.txt tells the state tool to attempt to run a script that’s defined in your
activestate.yaml file. You’d typically put a script in the
activestate.yaml file for a project to help with environment setup or some other development task. You wouldn’t use this to run a Python script - you’d just use a version of Python that you have installed to run your Python scripts.
What happens when you run
python -V on the command line? Do you see output like
Python 3.9.2 or similar?
If so, just run
python code1.txt and your Python script should be executed.
