  1. Open the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box by doing one of the following:
    • On the main menu, choose Run | Edit Configurations.

    • Press Shift+Alt+F10 and choose Edit Configuration on the context menu.

  2. Click Add New Configuration on the toolbar and select the desired configuration type:
