Yes, the toolchain can be installed in any location (although the path should not contain spaces).
You don’t need to re-download the toolchain. Once it is installed by running the .exe file, VisualGDB will automatically find it (you will need to restart Visual Studio if you installed the toolchain while it was running).
no, the esp32 toolchain is a rar packet, it is work when after d<span style=”font: 200 13px/19px Arial, ‘Microsoft YaHei’, 微软雅黑, 宋体, ‘Malgun Gothic’, Meiryo, sans-serif; text-align: left; color: #2e3033; text-transform: none; text-indent: 0px; letter-spacing: normal; word-spacing: 0px; float: none; display: inline !important; white-space: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; background-color: #f9fbfc; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px;”>ecompress…. there is not any step about installed by running exe.file…</span>
