Can i use MinGW GDB debugger with Visual Studio toolchain?

Answered

I have issues with bundled LLDB debugger (it skips memory violation accesses and doesn't give enough info about crash) and want to replace it with something more usable and working. When i set a path to MinGW's GDB executable, CLion detects version of the compiler correctly, then i apply and close the window and if i reopen it then it resets back to Bundled LLDB

Hello!

No, you can't.

Why? AFAIK all major debuggers know how to deal with different ABIs

GDB might know how to deal with different ABIs, but it doesn't know how to deal with different debug information formats.

By the way, the bundled debugger for the MSVC toolchain is not a general LLDB, it is implemented by our team on top of LLDB.
