Your program has stopped running... oh really??



  • I'm slowly making progress coming up to speed with Qt and Creator... but I've now run into the inobvious - the above error message. How do I get more details about why or where it's stopped running? Of note: when I d a ctrl-shft-B to build the app and then ctrl-R to run it I get the above message. But when I select from the Build menu Debug, it seems to run just fine. Does anyone know what's the difference btwn the two environments? And when I look at the help for Debug, I see statements like: Creator does not include a debugger, but will connect to gdb or cdb. I'm developing on W7, and installed the Nokia SDK. Did I install either in the install process? It would be nice to do a step by step execution of the pgm - would like to verify the values being calculated are reasonable - I've seen allusions in the doc to the ability to do such, but no specific details as to how. As I said, I'm very new to Creator and Qt, ie, this is my first app... where do I turn for more information?

    many thanks - greg



  • When you debuging (F5) you may use some debug-stuff, such as breakpoints, watches, etc...
    When you run you app (Ctrl+R) you can't use this.

    Creator using Mingw32 under Windows, and gdb as debugger, If you want you can use Visual Studio with it's debugger. (download Visual Studio add-in)

    For the sake of completeness: Qt Creator can also debug binaries compiled with the Microsoft compiler, so one does not "need" VS for debugging.



  • You could still consider it. CDB is pretty slow when you have debugging helpers enabled...
