3.4. Copying an existing Debug Configuration

You might want to create a Debug Configuration that is based on an existing Debug Configuration, for example, to perform OS-awareness debugging.

To copy an existing Debug Configuration:

  1. Select Connect to Target... from the Target menu to display the Connect to Target window.

  2. Select Configuration from the Grouped By drop-down list.

  3. Expand the Debug Interface containing the Debug Configuration to be copied.

  4. Make sure that there are no targets connected on the Debug Configuration.

    Note

    You cannot copy a Debug Configuration when the debugger is connected to a target in that Debug Configuration.

  5. Right-click on the required Debug Configuration to display the context menu.

  6. Select Copy Configuration from the context menu. A new Debug Configuration is created by prefixing the original configuration name with copy_of_. For example, if your original configuration was called ISSM, then the new configuration name is copy_of_ISSM.

    Also, the Debug Interface configuration file of the original configuration is copied to a new file with the following name:

    orignalname_n.ext

    For example, if the original file is called rvi_0.rvc, the new file might be called rvi_0_0.rvc.

    Note

    Do not use the same Debug Interface configuration file for more than one Debug Configuration. This is because deleting a Debug Configuration also deletes the configuration file.

  7. Rename the new configuration, if required.

  8. Configure the new configuration as required.
