View Full Version : Eclipse: "Launch failed. Binary not found"

I am using Eclipse Ganymede. I am at the moment using it for development in C++ applications using Opengl. (Using this as apposed to other compilers because eclipse is very easy and small to transport on a pen drive). And i was half way through developing a program when I went to test it and go this error:

"Launch failed. Binary not found."

Now please do not say "Change the path of the MinGW compiler it doesn't like '/'s," because it was working until a random point in the development. I can get a new C++ project to work so I am a bit perplexed as how come it was working then suddenly stopped. Does anyone know what could be the cause of this problem?

Cheers

I just had the same problem after installing Eclipse in Ubuntu. In fact, I installed Ubuntu and Eclipse together today (first time in my life) on my machine- Intel Xeon EMT64.

I was disappointed after I saw the error message.
"Launch failed Binary not found"

However, I found a solution by installing g++ "compiler" which was not installed originally.

Some website gave me a hint to install g++ by below command

sudo apt-get install g++

I hope this also solves your problem !

I hope this also solves your problem!

And until now, I thought it was installed by the IDE itself (which now seems very unlikely on any IDE- stupid me!!)

You're a savior! It works now.

I also found error in "Launch failed Binary not found". So, as your experience, I type sudo apt-get install g++, it saids it has already installed. But, the error still occur. How to solve it. I use Ubuntu 12.10 with Eclipse Juno. Please kindly share some advice. Thanks in advance.
