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.


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

To copy an existing Debug Configuration:

  1. Select Target → Connect to Target... from the Code window main menu to open 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.

  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 RTSM, then the new configuration name is copy_of_RTSM.

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


    For example, if the original file is called rtsm_0.rvc, the new file might be called rtsm_0_0.rvc.


    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.
