Starting the debuggee failed: No executable file specified.
« on: March 16, 2017, 05:33:08 am »
Hello Team,

This is what I see in my Debug log, when trying to run Debug command on the file. I have seen an earlier post saying that build target has to be set to an executable. I have a separate make file for the file I wanted to run and I wasnt able to generate the executable file though I have made many changes to build options. Can you help me in running and debugging the file?

Do you have correctly specified executable path in the project -> properties dialog for the target you're trying to debug?
