Specifying the relative path of debugged application
In order to debug imported GNU-based projects with VisualGDB you will need to manually specify the path of the debugged application. There are 2 options of doing it:
- You can build the application from command line and find out the executable name. Then enter the path to the executable (relative to the directory that you have specified when importing the project). E.g. if you are debugging gdb itself, the relative path will be gdb/gdb.exe if you are building a Windows version and gdb/gdb for the Linux one.
- You can also enter any expected name in the wizard, let it complete, build the application with VisualGDB, find out the actual name and go to the VisualGDB Project Properties. There you can always change the relative path to the app:
