Set the default application

From the Projects view, you can change the application that is used as the default.

About this task

When you select certain actions from the menus or toolbars, an application is required. These actions include building, executing, and debugging an application. When the application is not otherwise known, Genero Studio applies the action to the default application.

The default application is set on a configuration node. There can be only one default configuration node in a project. The default configuration node, as well as its parent and ancestor nodes, displays in bold.


  1. Right-click on a configuration node.
  2. Select Set as Default Application.

    If the node is already the default, the Set as Default Application right-click menu option is not available.
