"Could not find or load main" message, how do I fix it?
It means, it could not find a file named main (usually the main source file) under the source path listed in Build / Run Configuration.
When building or running, the goormIDE needs to know where the source files are located and the names of those files.
Even though it appears in [Project] > [Build/Run Configuration] in the top menu, if the content does not match the location of the actual source file, goormIDE cannot find the source file and cannot build/run it.
This usually happens when creating an empty project, which is caused by two things:
- 1.The folder where the actual main file is located is not set as the source path in the [Build/Run Configuration].
- 2.The main file does not exist under the source path.
First of all, make sure that the main file name and source file name shown in [Build/Run Configuration] are the same. Then, there are two ways to solve the problem.
- 1.(Recommended) Change the name of the main file to the name of the source file you want to build/run in [Build / Run Configuration].
- 2.Rename the source file's name to main you want to build/run.
If you make the name of the source file "main" in the current empty project, you can build/run it without any problem.
Please refer to Build/Run Configuration guide for more details.
