A matching Debug configuration cannot be found in wxWidgets directory you specified.
This means that Debug target of your project will not build.

It means exactly that. You can compile wxWidgets in many different ways - a.k.a. "configurations". You chose a configuration where your wxWidgets was not compiled for. What is the configuration? (E.g. monolitic, unicode, debug?)
Compiler logging: Settings->Compiler & Debugger->tab "Other"->Compiler logging="Full command line"

Hi thanks for the reply

For the configurations option i selected for wxWidgets libary Setings :Use wxWidgets Dll, wxWidgets is built as a monolithic library and Enable unicode

For the Miscellaneous Settings: i selected Create and use precompiled header (PCH)

Did you compile wxWidgets usingthat config? Notice: The download of wxWidgets just provides you with the sources.
You should have a file called "libwxmsw28u.a" in your wxWidgets lib folder.
