I want to download the SRA using SRA toolkit, so I installed it using this guidance:

and then configured it using this guidance:

but when I used below command to download SRA:

prefetch Accession_number_of_SRA

I got the below message:

configuration not loaded: no vdb-config found

This sra toolkit installation has not been configured.

Before continuing, please run: vdb-config --interactive

Now I need your help to solve this problem.

So did you run vdb-config --interactive?

Yes, this command is vdb-config -i (command for opening configuration window) actually. after configuration, this message will be repeated again and again

If you cannot get it to work, then obtain the SRA 'BioProject' ID, and search for this at the ENA (European Nucleotide Archive), where the FASTQ files are typically available for direct download.
