Cannot find the Delve executable for windows/amd64.


I started getting the error below when trying to debug any Go code.

"Cannot find the Delve executable for windows/amd64. Specify the Delve location by adding 'dlv.path=/path/to/delve' in 'Help | Edit Custom Properties'."

I followed the instructions and set dlv.path=C:\Users\david.diaz\go\bin which is where I installed dlv.exe.

I restarted the IDE and tried running the debugger again but still get the same error.

Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?


I got it to work by setting dlv.path to


but this is a custom debugger. How do I tell Goland to use the default debugger instead?

Debugging with custom Delve: C:\Users\david.diaz\go\bin\dlv.exe. Delete the 'dlv.path' custom property and restart the IDE to use bundled Delve.


Hey David,

Please remove a custom entry, reproduce the problem again, collect IDE logs (Help | Collect Logs and Diagnostic Data) and upload them to, provide its ID.


hmm weird, I removed the custom entry, restarted the IDE, but no longer able to reproduce the issue.


Please let me know if you will be able to reproduce it again and share the logs.

  1. go install
  2. copy '%homepath%\go\bin\dlv.exe'  to  'C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\JetBrains\IntelliJIdea2022.3\plugins\go-plugin\lib\dlv\windows\'
  3. restart idea
