VSCode C++ - Compound debug configuration pre-launch task (c++)

I am writing a program (c/c++) that sits between some hardware and another set of software. I have written a little program that "emulates" the hardware (a radio, CSP), and that emulates the other set of software (a TCP/IP socket, CDH). I want to be able to debug all 3 at the same time. However, the issue I run into is that, when defining a pre-launch task for the compound configuration, it doesn't actually take. Is there a way to trigger that to happen, or should I just run the build in the standalone configs?

My build system is waf.
