Debug launch failure.

We think we are having the problem described in the release notes under the Debugging section, item 4 (shown below)

Problem is I can not find where to point directly to the GDB exe (i.e. where is this setting "${cross_prefix}gdb${cross_suffix}")?

Can anyone help?


Thank you


Reference release note, Item 4:

ISSUE: If the PATH variable has double semicolons (;;) or a semicolon at the end, launching gdb debugger might fail. The it is possible that the gdb debugger specified with ${cross_prefix}gdb${cross_suffix} is not found. An error message with "Error while launching command: gdb --version" is shown.
WORKAROUND: The likely reason for this issue is a double semicolon in the PATH environment variable, or a semicolon at the end of the variable,  If a double semicolon or one at the end is present in your PATH, remove it. If this does not help: In the launch configuration settings, instead using ${cross_prefix}gdb${cross_suffix}, point directly to the GDB executable, e.g. "C:\Freescale\KDS_1.0\toolchain\bin\arm-none-eabi-gdb.exe".
