Hello, I have a problem with Eclipse.
I can't run any C/C++ project using Eclipse. It says "Launch failed. Binary not found."
Yes, I built the project, yes the binaries exist in "Debug" and "Release" folder and yes I can execute them directly.

What could be the problem?
Thenk you for the attention.

I figured out by myself:
Right click on the project > Properties > C/C++ Build > Settings > Binary Parsers > Select just Windows PE and move it up

I have also selected Windows PE as binary parser. Still I get the same error message: "Launch failed. Binary not found." I have Eclipse Luna.

Assuming that functions.cpp is supposed to contain the entry point for
your program, you need to change the spelling of the mian function to be
main.

What you initially typed is a valid function name so the only error that
you can expect in this case is the error that you received when the
linker tried to link your executable.

What you figured out by yourself doesn't work. I still have the same problem about "Binary not found." Is there anything else that can be done to fix this problem.

Project > Properties > Run/Debug Settings

Click 'New...' button

Choose 'C/C++ Application' and then Edit Configuration window will be opened.

Enter Debug/"your project name"in C/C++ Application box(?) on the Main tab.



I figured out this problem by using this solution.
hope it will help you.

Hey,

Try following these steps:

1. Run configurations...
2. Under the "main" tab, and in the C/C++ Application textbox: hit the browse button
3. in your workspace file or wherever you save your documents, open your program file, click on "Debug", click your source folder, and click on the file with the the file extension "***.d"
4. hit OK at the bottom of the screen
5. Build the program and run it
6. Go back to Run configurations
7. Under the "main" tab, and in the C/C++ Application textbox: hit the browse button
8. In your workspace file or wherever you save your documents, open your program file, click on "Debug", and click on your program with the little eclipse icon

you are now set to employ your program.

Right-click on the project > Run As... > Local C/C++ Application;
This generate the executable Wink

After...
Right-click on the project > RunAs > Run Configurations...

In Run Configurations:
Right-click on C/C++ Application > New:
In C/C++ Application, click in "Browse..." then, select the executable.

Now, it's work! Very Happy

None. You don't have one. Eclipse can't find GCC to make it.
This may help: http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/697857/

None of these solutions worked for me. If anyone still has problems try this one which worked for me.
In other forums I found that MinGw path needs to be set after installing the same. The path typically is C:\MinGW\bin\.
Once I added in the path and built the project, it worked fine.

Thank you, you are right, before execute the c++ code , we need to build it or that means compile.
