Debugger for Qt 5.2.0 for Windows 32-bit built with VS 2010

  • I downloaded and installed Qt 5.2.0 for Windows 32-bit (VS 2010) but this does not include any debugger. What debugger can I use ? How can I get it? Thank you.

    I think the default on Windows is CDB, it should be included in your MSVC installation.

    To add to sierdzio, did you install Visual Studio 2010 ?

  • It comes with Windows SDK. You may have to explicitly select the "debugging tools" in the installation process.

    If everything is correct you could find cdb.exe in;

    for 32 bits

    bq. C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\Debuggers\x86\cdb.exe

    for 64 bits

    bq. C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\Debuggers\x64\cdb.exe

    • After installing Debugger tools,
    • Tools >> Options >> Build & Run >> Tool Chains
    • "Clone" the auto-detected MSVC items
    • specify the debugger path in the "Debugger" field
