- Open a project you have not built yet.
- If needed, configure the project with multiple build configurations.
Two build configurations with the same kit should be sufficient.
- Switch to a different build configuration and press Ctrl+R immediately after project parsing has finished.
The project will be built but cannot be executed. In the Application Output view, you can see an error message like:
Die ausführbare Datei D:\Testprojekte\build-untitled1013-Desktop-Debug\untitled1013.exe existiert nicht.
Indeed, the executable does not exist there because it was built in the subdirectory "debug" (or similar depending on the build configuration).
Creator should search for the executable in the right place.
