Problem installing GDB debugger extension!!
Nov 7th, 2019 at 9:31am
I'm trying to get GDB debugging working. I've followed all the steps in the other post on GDB debugging.
I've looked at the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Visual Micro\Options\Debug General\MicroGdb Location and I see that microgdb.exe isn't there.

I previously installed the GDB extensión so I removed it, downloaded the extensión from Marketplace and I see in the .vsix that the microgdb.exe is there.

Re installed the extensión from the downloaded package but still no microdbg.exe.

Looking at the directory it looks like nothing from the GDB package has been installed however Visual Studio knows it is installed as it won't let me install a second time.

I'm using Visual Studio Enterprise 2017 V15.2
VM versión 1707.14.9
GDB for VM 15.170501.1

My code (for STM32) compiles and uploads (with STLink) with no problem.

The GDB for VM extension is superseded in VS 2017+

To get the full debugging benefits we recommend you uninstall the GDB for VM extension, and update the Visual Micro extension.

All Debuggers now Supported are below:

You also need to first click Help>Update to update your visual studio. It is very old. You need to do that before you install visual micro otherwise you will see an install error.

Visual Micro is updated via Tools>Extensions and Updates>Updates

Then you will see the hardware debug menus.
