Create a launch configuration

Note: You must build your project before you can create a launch configuration.

To create a launch configuration:

  1. In the Project Explorer view, right-click a project and select either Debug As or Run As, then click C/C++ QNX Application.

    The IDE creates a default launch configuration and opens the Debug Configurations or Run Configurations dialog (depending on which action you selected).

  2. In the Name field, type a name for the launch configuration.
  3. In the Build configuration drop-down, select the build configuration for this launch configuration.

    You can view the build configuration options for your project by right-clicking on your project and selecting Build Configurations > Set Active. The build configuration type determines how the binary file is packaged and what type of target it will run on.

  4. In the Target Options section, select your target.

    If necessary, you can create a target by clicking Add New Target..., filling in the connection fields in the resulting dialog, and then clicking Finish to save the new target information.

  5. Click Apply to save the configuration.
Now that you've created the launch configuration, the configuration is listed in the Run Configurations and Debug Configurations dialogs. By default, the application is associated with this new launch configuration. You can run or debug the application simply by clicking Run or Debug.
