Missing cygwin components

VisualGDB requires the following cygwin tools to be installed:

  • gcc.exe
  • gdb.exe
  • make.exe
  • ar.exe

The tools should be normally installed in c:\cygwin\bin where c:\cygwin is your cygwin installation folder.

If you are missing some of the tools, please run cygwin setup, open "Select Packages" and ensure that the following packages are installed (inside the Devel category):

  • binutils
  • gcc-g++
  • make

After installing the packages please restart the VisualGDB Project Wizard.

Note: you do not need cygwin to build remote Linux or Embedded Applications. Cygwin is only required if you want to build Win32 apps based on Cygwin.
