Remote debugging Raspberry Pi not working

I am evaluating Wing 6.0.8-1 Personal and trying to do remote debugging on an Raspberry Pi 3.

However, I get the following error message:

Error: Cannot find in $(WINGHOME)/bin or $(WINGHOME)/src
Error: Please check the WINGHOME definition in

The file exists in the right place: (WINGHOME=/home/pi/wing-debugger-raspbian-6.0.8-1):

$ ls -al /home/pi/wingide-debugger-raspbian-6.0.8-1/bin/
total 48
drwxr-xr-x 3 pi pi 4096 Nov 5 14:33 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 pi pi 4096 Nov 5 13:19 ..

-rwxr-xr-x 1 pi pi 31626 Apr 1 2017

(Execute permission added by me in a try to fix things.)

What is wrong with my setup?I followed up on the advice with kLogFile, but today everything worked. Not sure what has changed in between -- maybe a restart of WindIDE or I missed a step in the documentation two weeks ago?

It looks right to me also.  Try setting the kLogFile in to see if that contains additional diagnostic information.

BTW, an easier way to do this is with Wing Pro's remote development support as described in (in case you didn't see that already)
