Incompatible Launch Configuration

lpcxpresso-support's picture

LPCXpresso uses "launch configuration" files to store the settings used for starting a debug session. There will be a launch configuration file for each build configuration within a project, typically Debug and Release.

Launch configuration files created with earlier versions of LPCXpresso or Red Suite are incompatible with LPCXpresso v6. If you try to start a debug session for a project which contains an old launch configuration, then LPCXpresso v6 will give an error message :

Cannot start debugger

Incompatible launch configuration

In this case you will need to delete the existing launch configurations from the project. In most circumstances LPCXpresso will then recreate a new set of launch configuration files the next time you start a debug session.

For more information on launch configurations and how to delete them, please see:
