I installed TA 6.5 which I believe has the fix for this, but now I get this
as the error message when double-clicking on an error line.

Lines to double-clock on:

TA Error message:

After looking at the code I see that you are expecting the user to "Run" or
"Complie", but I am using make so I added my own keyboard shortcut to run

Here is the main parts from my ...cpp/post_init.lua:

local function RunMake()
