I'm new to this. I have installed Eclipse, I want to do C++ in it. I got the Hello World project to run, but I created a new blank c++ project, pasted in some sample code. I can build the project but when I try to debug or run, I get the error message:

Launching [project name].exe has encountered a problem. Program file does not exist.

Looking at the path, it _doesn't_ exist. I would be grateful if someone could explain how to make it exist, or otherwise get beyond this.

This sounds like a question not about the Eclipse launcher "eclipse.exe", but one you're trying to build from C sources.
Maybe you should ask it on the C Development Tools forum: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/80/

Cheers
