    I have an existing Visual Studio project that builds using GCC 7.2.1.  I would like to add the ability to deploy and debug this project using VisualGDB.

    Is it possible to add this functionality to the existing project?

    Regards

    Hi,

    The VisualGDB debug/deployment functionality depends on a few MSBuild variables that are only set by VisualGDB projects, so generally we would advise converting the project to a VisualGDB-based one. You can do this by adding the “VisualGDB” platform to it via the Configuration Manager and copying the MSBuild settings (e.g. toolchain ID and remote host) from an MSBuild project created by the VisualGDB wizard. This will preserve the file structure in the Solution Explorer, but will let you use the optimized VisualGDB build engine and debug engine for your project (as long as you have the VisualGDB platform selected).
