Debugger crashing



I have PyCharm 2018.2.2 (Community Edition). Unfortunately, the debugger stopped working. I have removed all break points and created a new clean project. When I set a break point and run the debugger a message appears that Python has stopped working. The details are the following:

When I add PYCHARM_DEBUG=True in the run configuration and then rerun debugging, the following output appears (along with the same crash notification as above):

Using Cython speedups
Executing file C:/Users/myName/Desktop/test/
arguments: ['C:/Users/myName/Desktop/test/']

Started in multiproc mode

('Connecting to ', '', ':', '64785')
debugger: received >>99    -1    64786
Received command: ??? 99    -1    64786

Received port 64786

pydev debugger: process 11604 is connecting

Process finished with exit code -1073741819 (0xC0000005)


When I normal run the program it works, only the debugger crashes. I also didn't have this problem before, it just suddenly appeared. By the way, I have Anaconda installed.

Please try with the latest version of PyCharm

Try setting PYDEVD_USE_CYTHON=NO and PYDEVD_USE_FRAME_EVAL=NO environment variables in the corresponding run configuration.

If nothing helps, please upload your renamed logs folder zipped (Help | Compress Logs and Show in...) after reproducing the problem to and let me know the name of that zip file.
