Executables view

The Executables view provides a dynamic list of executables and their related source files. The Executables view makes it easy to:

In addition, an Executables project is created in the Project Explorer view. The binaries shown in the Executables project can be deleted which also removes them from the Executables view. For binaries outside the workspace you must import them into the Executables view so their symbolics can be used during the debug session. You can also drag and drop executables into the view.
