My executable program has already been downloaded to the target. How do I start debugging without downloading the executable again?
Note: This answer applies to ModusToolbox™ v1.1. In ModusToolbox v2.0, use the Attach debug configuration.
The debug configurations that come with ModusToolbox IDE download the executable. It is easy to create a new debug configuration that connects to the process (the executable program already on the target).
Open the debug configurations in ModusToolbox IDE.
Right-click the configuration that you want to use and choose Duplicate.
Rename the duplicate configuration.
On the Startup tab, turn off Load executable.
You can use this configuration to connect to the process already on the target. For debugging to work that process must be the same as the one created by your project.
