Hi Tim,

thank you for the information.

I have set up Qt Creator on Linux and that works as expected.

I guess the next step would have been to debug Qt Creator on Windows,
but I gave up on building it from source when some prerequisite wanted
me to install the Direct X SDK.

I have not seen anything suspicious in the logs. But i think you haven't set up the debug hardware in your cortex m4. You must switch off the powerdown of the jtag interface in wfi. You can put this in your openocd startup script. 

See http://nuttx.org/doku.php?id=wiki:howtos:jtag-debugging for some details.

Best regards
