    Debug's cryptic error message: "Program file does not exist"


    I have encountered a problem with debug.

    I launched Debug As
    DAVE C/C++ Application

    The error message was very cryptic and did not help in finding the solution.
    The error message is as follows:

    After looking into the problem I realised that the missing file is not mentioned in the Debug Configurations window in the field of C/C++ Application.
    See in the attachment below:

    The solution is to add the file in the field see bellow:

    I hope this helps if you have the same problem.

    Thanks for sharing your solution with community. This normally happens when you have created a debug configuration before building the project. This will be automatically added if project is build first.
    You can also create another debug configuration by double clicking on GDB SEGGER J-Link Debugging on left side.

    Best Regards,
