Hi,
I opened a WorkSpace name is "workspace1"
What sort of workspace is it? A 'C++' one?
And you don't mention a project. Does workspace1 have a project? If so, which sort? If not, you need to add one.

Assuming you do have a C++ workspace, and it does have a project, I suggest you attach a zip of it here so people can test it.

Regards,

David

Hi David,Thanks for your reply.

I tried both C++ and File-System-Workspace,and They were all empty.
Just like this(I posed the same question on GitHub):
https://github.com/eranif/codelite/issues/2658

In C++ WorkSpace I created a console project,I have a main.cpp to printf string "Hello world!".
I build and run it is success.

What surprises me is that there is never any content in Workspace View.
Shouldn't there normally be a project directory or a file tree?

This problem has been bothering me for a long time and has seriously affected my ability to write code in Codelite.

Has this ever happened to you or anyone else?

No
or anyone else?
Not that I've heard.

Please create an archive e.g. zip of one of your failing workspaces + project, and attach it here. Then we can test it.

Here :
workspace1.zip
But I don't think it's a question of creating workspaces,because the "Debugger" and "Output View" panes all empty when I started CodeLite and running main.cpp.

Is my OS(Windows8.1) having compatibility problems with CodeLite?

I just opened your workspace/project and saw:
workspace.png
So it's not a problem with the workspace itself.
Is my OS(Windows8.1) having compatibility problems with CodeLite?
I've not used Windows since Win95, so I'm not the best person to ask. But I'm sure that many others have used 8.1 successfully.

I suggest you:
Close CodeLite.
Delete, or temporarily rename, your CodeLite configuration (that's probably %appdata%\Codelite, where %appdata% may be C:\Users\<name>\AppData)
Start CodeLite again; that should create a new configuration.
Create a new workspace and add one of the specimen projects.

If that works, and looks correct, there must have been a problem with your initial install.
If it still doesn't work, I've run out of ideas.

If you don't know how to solve the problem ...

Well, I'll wait to see if anyone else responds to me.

Thanks for your patience in helping me!
