Debug Configurations - OS Awareness tab

Describes the OS Awareness tab content.

The OS Awareness tab in the Debug Configurations dialog box enables you to inform the debugger of the Operating system (OS) the target is running. This enables the debugger to provide additional functionality specific to the selected OS.

Multiple options are available in the drop-down box and its content is controlled by the selected platform and connection type in the Connection tab. OS awareness depends on having debug symbols for the OS loaded within the debugger.


Linux OS awareness is not currently available in this tab, and remains in the Connection tab as a separate debug operation.
