Most IDEs create Debug and Release confugurations during creating a project. And usually Debug configuration works fine as standalone app, i.e. without connecting to a PC. May be not as effective as it supposed to, but works. Sometimes Release config does not necause of too smart compaler that optimizes too much
Ac6, unfortunatelly, neither creates two configurations, nor makes a file that can run Debug config in standalone mode. And it casues a big trouble - you write, debug a project, it works, you like it and suddenly... oops!!!
I even tried to do it on Nucleo board with simple GPIO toggling provided by STM. The project compiled, downloaded into the board and ran. However, if you disconnect the board from the IDE/PC and connect it again to PC nothing happens.
The only difference between Nucleo board and my own board - while the Nucleo board connected to PC/IDE you can run it by hitting “Run” button (not only “Debug”) and restart the program by pressing reset button on board. My own board can’t do it
I hope Ac6 guys, at least, can help to build Release configuration here before the new version of the IDE be available.
I understand, that Linux gurus can find this problem ridiculous , but for people switched from IAR and other IDEs it is a big problem.
