Ask questionsWrong separator in path when debugging c++

  • VSCode Version: 1.37.1
  • OS Version: Windows 10
  • Mingw-w64 Version: 6.0.0

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. VS code, C++ extension and Mingw-w64 are successfully installed.
  2. Create a "hello world" C++ program in VS code and press F5 to debug.
  3. ERROR INFO "Unable to start debugging. Unexpected GDB output from command "-environment-cd C:\\Users\\UserName\\Desktop\\test". C:\\Users\\UserName\\Desktop\\test: No such fire or directory."

I guess it is because the VS code passes the workspace directory with wrong separator to Windows Command, "\\" and "/" are both supported by VS code, but "\\" is not supported by Windows Command, I have also tried to modify the .json files, but it did not work.

I don't know how to solve the problem, so I'd like to ask for help.
