QtCreator won't start with debugger as normal user

  • Hi there,

    i got an installed QtCreator on my machine as follows:

    • Windows 10 Pro 64bit
    • QtCreator 4.11.0
    • Qt 5.14.0 (MSVC 2017, 32bit)

    The installation was done by using Qt's online installer under admin rights. As a result i can start QtCreator as normal user only without debugging support ("qtcreator.exe -noload debugger" from console). For full support i need admin rights. Otherwise the QtCreator will not start.
    Ho knows how to help me?

    Thanks in advance,

    @Marcellowitsch What happens if you start with debugger support as normal user? What debugger did you install?

  • @jsulm If i start the QtCreator as normal user, the mouse icon changes to wait cursor (for a second) and back to an arrow - that's all.
    The installed debuggers are:

    • GNU gdb 8.1 for MinGW 7.3.0 64-bit
    • CDB from C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x86\cdb.exe
    • CDB from C:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x64\cdb.exe

    (all found automatically)

  • Hi,

    i did not found the reason - but a solution: After removing the folder „C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\QtProject“ i could start the QtCreator without any problems. Maybe something was wrong configured.

    Good luck
