Help :(
It's in the compiler setup -> Settings -> Compiler and debugger.
Compiler logging: Settings->Compiler & Debugger->tab "Other"->Compiler logging="Full command line"

i got this error too in my first debugging test with C::B, to solve it i downloaded a version of gdb a part from mingw (it didnt come whith mingw), wich you could find here: http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/gnu/mingw/?fisel=gG (look for gdb-5.2.1-1.exe or  gdb-other-version .exe ).
Just install it over your main mingw folder and done.

ps: sure, i m supossing that you are using the mingw  :D

Hi Fud,
Thanks very much for this.
