Title: Debugger Fails During Intialization
Post by Caird on Oct 3rd, 2017 at 10:49pm
During debugging my code compiles, uploads and then ALWAYS stalls during initialization. I never get past the initialization phase. I have checked Windows 10 task list and microgdb.exe is running. I have attached details of error code.

Having exactly the same issue. (fresh install of VS2017 and VM)

openocd error log:

Sorry I missed this post.

GDB is different for each board so it is important to give info about the board and code you are using.

There is also ability on the vMicro menu to switch on verbose and "show build properties" which gives us useful into about your config after a build.

After gdb fails to connect the microgdb.exe and/or openocd processes can remain loaded. You can use task manager to terminate them otherwise gdb will certainly not start again.

Below the bin/config/build folder there are some gdb logs that would also be useful.

Please try to gather this info into files and zip and post or email to info[at]visualmicro.com

I also have listed a number of error message I get after compiling in the attached file.

Tim:

Please ignore all previous posts. I found the initialization problem. I had Serial.begin(9600) in my code. It has to be Serial.begin(115200) as this is the default baud rate for the Atmel EDBG debugger chip.

The debugger now initializes BUT now I have another problem. The Visual Studio Code Screen goes blank and a small spinning wheel appears. After about 5 min this times out and Visual Studio gives the error message as shown in attached file and my code reappears on the Visual Studio screen.

I have also attached the messages in the Visual Studio "Output" Window and the Visual Micro log files

Sorry I missed the posts in this board.

Everything looked good but then stops after the first break instruction.

What hardware and programmer options are you using?
