Debugging dll. Host aplication don´t start
« on: April 04, 2010, 05:35:34 pm »
Hi,

i want to check the contents of a certain variable in a dll.
The host application is set, and the debugger seem to run, but
the host application never show up.
Is there some kind of option that i miss to make this work?

Does the host app run when you use the Run button?
Can you provide the output of the Debuggers debug output pane (to enable it settings -> compiler & debugger -> debugger -> show debugger's debug log (or something like that))?
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

To be honest, i never tried the Run button before. But now i did and it presented me with an error message/hint as a reward. The debugger expected the host application to be in the projects directory. To fix it i added the right directory to the search directory´s in the global compiler settings. It´s working now but the next problem already presented itself.
In the watches window of the debugger, it always says no symbol table info available, thus i´m stuck again.
And yes i checked the -g option to compile with debugging symbols.
Any more hints?

Edit:

My fault. I pointed the debugger search dir to the host application and not to the dll. Everythings working now!
Thank you.
