You need to understand that in managed make projects, the system include
paths are all automatically added for you - whether CDT uses absolute or
relative path names, it always does this right. As a consequence, CDT
can set the build system's working directory to wherever it wishes - and
in this case, it has set the working directory to be the Debug
directory. All relative path names are interpreted from the working
directory. I say you need to understand this because it will affect ANY
relative path you enter, not just for include path resolution.
Hopefully you'll have a better idea what to look for if something
similar happens in the future.
To resolve the path name properly, change the local include path like so:
Alternatively, you could use an absolute path name, but that makes it
much easier for someone to break your makefiles if you re-distribute
your program in source code form - if they put the source in a different
folder, the absolute path to your project (and thus your include
directory) will not be what the makefile expects.
