QtCreator debugging DLL - process list always empty

  • I use QtCreator 2.8.1 and the output of my project is a DLL. That
    DLL ist use by an external application. To be able to debug my DLL,
    I thought I can attatch the debugger to that process as I do it in
    Visual Studio. But the process list is always empty.

    Is that a bug? What can I do?

  • Does nobody know why Qt Creator does not show the processes to attach to? My colleague has the same problem but I found no more information about that.

    You should try asking on the qt-creator mailing list you'll find there's Qt Creator's developers/maintainers. Don't forget to subscribe first

  • You have to specify a 'Kit' to get it working. In my case no kit was specified but developing was possible nevertheless. A message would be nice at this place to inform the user about the problem because the buttons at the bottom of the dialog had no effect. There was no hint.
