Description
Hi Guys,

I found a very weird bug. Sometimes when debugging on linux an application initialy developped on Windows (moved across using Starteam) the debugger will refuse to work claiming that there is no application to debug.

Well, he is right, for some odd reason, C++Builder somtime uses a '\' instead of a '/' which leads to the creation of a directory called "linux\Debug_Build" instead of two directory "linux" and then "Debug_Build".

Marc.
Steps to Reproduce:
I could not yet work around when that happen, I will update the case if I ever do.
Workarounds
Go in the debug build configuration modify the directory entry (i.e. replace "Linux\Debug_Build" by "Linux/Bebug_Build".

Recompile, done deal.

Marc.
