I have been using ST Visual develop for months, with the same MCU: STM8L, compiling and debugging with no problem.


Then yesterday I started getting a message to say that it can't start GDB :

Starting debug session...
-> Failed to start GDB.

(see also attached picture for message boxes).


I have checked that the file path is correct Tools->Options : Toolset 

Tool set : STM8 Cosmic

Root path : C:\Program Files (x86)\COSMIC\FSE_Compilers\CXSTM8


I even tried uninstalling and re-installing, same error.

Occasionally I have seen a popup saying that there is a lack of memory - but there is plenty available.


I am running :

Windows 10

ST Visual develop (two version numbers given in the about box : 4.3.12, Build 4 Aug 2017
