Unable to find executable following build of renamed project

I  have a project in release mode -- I check it builds links and run

I clean the project

I then change the project's name

change the active and other setting both to debug

I then rebuild the project -- it builds and links and gives

unable to find executable

I right click on the renamed project and look at build configurations

The build configuration is still to run the executable in the release directory of the original name of the project

 

:-)   CCES is like the rest of us -- likes the status quo and does not hand change too well  :-)

 

What I am doing

I build libraries as executables first for testing purposes

I then generate a copy of the library project as test project with a different name

I then exclude all the test files from the the library project and change the make to generate a dlb

I then exclude all the library files from the testing projecvt and link in the library file I generated.

All done with links

 

However the renaming of the project did not change the run configuration so when I was testing the code -- test + library, the system was trying to run the original executable in the original release directory
