  • You have a typo in your path.
    You don't need the first dot.
    Try to run it like this:

  • Yes, i have typio, but valgrind is not working and file exists in this directory: /home/davit/MyProjects/build-test_window_-Desktop_Qt_5_5_1_GCC_64bit-Debug/test_window_
    and I can run it manually from terminal, by typing: /home/davit/MyProjects/build-test_window_-Desktop_Qt_5_5_1_GCC_64bit-Debug/test_window_

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Might be a silly question but: do you have valgrind installed ?

  • @SGaist thank you for your question. I thought that Valgrind was installed along with Qt Creator together, wasn't it? How do I install it if it was not already installed? Thank you.

    No it’s not. It’s an external tool on the same level as cmake or even the compiler.

    As for installing it, it depends on your OS/distribution.

    its completely stand alone project/tool
