    I just upgraded to 20191024 debug method and now have significant debug issues.

    Is the previous debug method (I think it was about 3 months old) available somewhere? If it is, I would like to revert to it.

    Every other time I attempt a debug without restarting the ESP32, I get a bizarre load address and a halt instead of my program starting. It is reliably every other startup. So after I get the error, I just stop the debugger, start it again and it runs OK.

    No problem, you can always install the previous debug method via Tools->VisualGDB->Manage VisualGDB Packages->Show Old Package Versions.

    Generally, the ESP32 tool ecosystem is relatively fragile, so some combinations of toolchain/ESP-IDF/debug package may indeed not work.

    If you encounter weird reliability issues, we would advise starting with a basic LEDBlink project using one of the toolchain+ESP-IDF combinations shipped by us (they passed minimal tests on our side) and then comparing the working setup with the one that behaves unreliably. This should help pinpoint the specific parameter that is causing the issues.




    Thanks for your quick response.  Unfortunately, I do not see “Show Old Package Versions”. I have attached a screenshot. Am I just being blind or is it not there?

    Looks like you are viewing the installed packages. Please try switching to the “online” view instead.




    Thanks !



    No worries and thanks for posting the full screenshot. It made it much easier for us to find and point out the cause.
