Configuring the debugger path substitution rules

The debugger might not be able to locate the source file when debug information is loaded because:

Therefore, you must modify the search paths used by the debugger when it executes any of the commands that look up and display source code.

To modify the search paths:

  1. Open the Path Substitution dialog box:

    • If a source file cannot be located, a warning is displayed in the C/C++ editor. Click on Set Path Substitution.

    • In the Debug Control view, select Path Substitution from the view menu.

    2. Enter the current location of the source files in the Host Path field or click on:

      • File System... to locate the source files in an external folder

      • Workspace... to locate the source files in a workspace project.
