Hello forum,

I am trying to convert a ray tracing application to Qt, to exploit the GUI debugging capability of Qt. When i set the break point and and starts debugging i get the following error message:


Any idea ?

Seems pretty obvious from the message - you're trying to debug an executable that was not built with debug information. If you want to debug the application, you need to build all parts of it in debug mode, including the ray tracing code. Otherwise, when you step from code built with debug to code built in release mode, you'll get the errors you see.

The top error is because you are running a release build.

The bottom error is because you program has crashed, probably because of a null or invalid pointer.
