Watcher failing to run on latest create-react-app (0.8.3)

See original GitHub issue

I just installed the latest create-react-app and I can no longer get the watcher to run. I’m currently getting the following error in vscode:

    throw error;

Closing this issue since the extension now displays a message that it relies on Jest 20+, and despite the using create-react-app with react-scripts 0.8.3 and Jest 17.0.2 it still worked OK.
