This should be simple, but I'm struggling. I have a project I'm building outside of the Vitis IDE, but would like to use the standalone debugger. When I compile and run targeting sw_emu everything works, and the debugger attaches to the kernel. When I target hw_emu, compilation works and the correct xclbin is loaded, but the debugger does not attach to the kernel. The kernel isn't shown in the left pane of the debugger, and no kernel sources are opened.
The standalone debug mode supports hw_emu targets as well as sw_emu targets. Does your application run in the debug environment but you don't have access to the kernel for debug, or the application doesn't run? Are you able to debug an example application in hw_emu mode? When you run debug in the Vitis IDE do you observe a different behavior?
