Duplicate a SignalGenerator batch file from the BCI2000 batch directory that is similar to your needs

Debug 1.png

Rename it to contain "VeryNiceSignalProcessing" in its name

Debug 2.png

Edit the batch file by adding --EvaluateTiming=0 to the SignalGenerator line, and by replacing the signal processing module's name with "VeryNiceSignalProcessing"

Debug 3.png

Double-click the batch file to start up BCI2000

In the VisualStudio IDE, set a breakpoint in VeryNiceFilter::StartRun(), and choose "Attach to Process..." from the "Debug" menu

From the process list, choose "Very Nice Signal Processing", and click "Attach"

... and "Run", which will execute VeryNiceFilter::StartRun() ...

and cause the debugger to stop execution at the breakpoint you set earlier
