Creating a non-QNX project

Updated: October 26, 2022

The IDE lets you create any project type supported by the C/C++ Development Toolkit (CDT) in the Eclipse platform.

By default, the non-QNX project types that the CDT supports aren't shown in the common project types listed in the File > New submenu, or in the New Project window accessible through File > New > Project. This design ensures that IDE users see only QNX-specific project wizards when they first use the IDE with a new workspace.

You can display the CDT project wizards by accessing Window > Preferences > General > Capabilities and then checking the CDT Extras box in the Activities panel in the Capabilities dialog. For information on using these wizards to create projects, see the “Creating a project” topic in the C/C++ Development User Guide.
