Cannot initialize Debugger
Aug 29th, 2017 at 10:54pm
 
I use Vs2017, Arduino M0 and this example Sketch (http://www.visualmicro.com/page/User-Guide.aspx?doc=Arduino-gdb-Tutorial.html), set a Breakpoint and start debugging by pressing F5.

Code compiles, upload and then... the messagebox appears "Cannot start Debugging" (in German). I checked configuration/Debugging. The path to "local Debugger executable"  was invalid. Ok, let's change it... But I don't have a file microgdb.exe...

My registry tells me this location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\Common7\IDE\Extensions\iznu5qi1.uuf\microgdb.exe

But there is no microgdb.exe... Any idea?

Wich type of debugger i have to use in <project properties> / Configuration / Debugging.

In my case I use "not supported debugging option"... Only remote Windows Debugger and local Windows Debugger are valid.

vMicro will automatically set the project properties for debugging when the options are enabled, and "not supported debugging option" is correct in the current setup.

We now support a variety of hardware debuggers out of the box in vMicro including the SAMD platform for the M0:
