[SOLVED] QT Creator doesn't start the debugger

  • project type: cmake
    compiler: msvc 2013

    after successful build (with -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug in parameters of cmake window)
    Im trying to start debug
    and got the message:
    Internal error: Cannot start process C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Debuggers\x86\cdb.exe: Could not start process: Invalid directory name

    debugger does exist in specified folder.

    How to solve this issue?

  • please close the topic,
    the settings of working dirrectory was incorrect, and debugger could not find the executable

  • Edit your title and add [SOLVED] at the beginning. Too bad adding the solved tag doesn't do this automatically.

  • @amigo421 said in [SOLVED] QT Creator doesn't start the debugger:
    I would raise it as a bug - the message should be more precise, e.g. "working directory is invalid." The current message is very confusing so I had to google the issue to figure out that working dir is wrong.
