  • Maybe You've already executed an instance on your IDE environment. Or, You used a shadow make, the executable file will be linked under shadow directory

    First thing: Please check whether the file you want to run was actually created. Go into your build directory and check that it is indeed where it should be.



  • @tobias

    yes my file is which i want to run is created, its there in build directory...


  • Moderators

    So is creator trying to run that file? What does Projects->Run Settings say? What is it trying to execute?



  • it is trying to execute...

    H:\QtSDK\Demos\4.7\spectrum-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MinGW_4_4__Qt_SDK__Debug\spectrum.exe

    and the working directory is...

    H:\QtSDK\Demos\4.7\spectrum-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MinGW_4_4__Qt_SDK__Debug


  • Moderators

    So does H:\QtSDK\Demos\4.7\spectrum-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MinGW_4_4__Qt_SDK__Debug\spectrum.exe exist? Can you run it from the shell?



  • omg...

    it is not there...
    so wat shall i do then..



  • @tobias

    it is working now...
    the exe file which i was searching was not there in

    H:\QtSDK\Demos\4.7\spectrum-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MinGW_4_4__Qt_SDK__Debug

    directory..
    instead of that it was there in the

    H:\QtSDK\Demos\4.7\spectrum-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MinGW_4_4__Qt_SDK__Debug\debug

    directory..

    so i changed the run configuration and its working now....

    thanx tobias for pointing out my mistake...
