Main tab

This tab lets you specify the project and the executable that you want to run or debug. The IDE might fill in some of the fields for you:

Different fields appear in the Main tab, depending on the type of configuration you're creating. Here are descriptions of all the fields:

Project
Type the name of the project that contains the executable you want to launch. You may also locate a project by clicking Browse…. You can create or edit launch configurations only for open projects.
Target Options
  • If you want to filter out platforms that don't match your selected executable, then set the Filter targets based on C/C++ Application selection on. For example, if you've chosen a program compiled for PowerPC, you'll see only PowerPC targets and offline targets.
  • Select a target from the available list. If you haven't created a target, click Add New Target.
