How to solve “Lauch Failed:Binary Not Found” C/C++ Error in Eclipse

This error is caused by some mis configuration in Eclipse. As error clearly says “Binary Not Found” which means while compiling C++ code there are some dependencies which are required but Eclipse cannot found those in Project Environment.

Let’s see step-by-step solution to this problem.

Open up Preferences of Eclipse

Go to Preferences -> C/C++ -> Build -> Environment -> Select Tab on right hand side -> A Little window named “Select Variables” will pop up

Click Select All -> Then Click OK
This will setup PATH, HOME and some other Environment variables which latter can be used by Compiler for compiling C/C++ code.

Click on Apply

Now go to C/C++ -> New C/C++ Project Wizard -> Makefile Project -> Click Apply and Close
Depending on your operating system select Mach-O 64 Parser for MAC or Cygwin PE64 Parser for Windows

Now go to Project Tab -> Build All
This will build up binaries of C/C++ Code

Now go to Run Tab -> Run
This will execute binaries of C/C++ code which was made by compiler in last step

Hopefully this will solve “Lauched Failed:Binary Not Found” error.
If still error doesn’t get resolved after following the above steps, then let me know in comments I’ll try to help you out to get rid of this error from your project.
