Issue with OpenAI API key while using it in Windows using VS Code and Node.js

This is the first time I’ve used an OpenAPI key and in VS code I keep getting the same error when I run the ‘node openai-test.js’ as recommended here ( using the Windows / Node.js features. I keep getting a 429 error which according to the OpenAI docs is due to exceeding your API Key quota, however its the first time I’ve used this service so it doesn’t really make sense that I’m over the quota already. Any ideas?

You must purchase account credits in order to use the API. It is not a free service, is separate from ChatGPT, and there is no more post-paid billing.
