Unable to find / create exe file?
« on: March 27, 2010, 02:04:37 pm »
First off I'm gonna pull a veltins and start off by saying:

Hey!

I start by choosing console application....  lol, just kidding  :D

Actually, I have three questions so I'll try my best to explain the issues. I searched the site and read the wiki's but cannot find what I'm looking for or atleast haven't found it yet. So far, I'm absolutely loving C::B. You guys did an awesome job.

QUESTIONS:
1. When I create a new project, (console application), everything works as it should but when ever I build and run the source, I can never locate an .exe file. I'm looking in the project's folder but cannot find it. Am I missing something? Where is the exe file? I'm able to build an exe file if instead of creating a new project, I create a new 'empty file' instead.

2. If I open up an existing source file (C++), or paste source into an already open C++ file, the file somehow converts to C and saves as a C source file and not C++ even though when creating the new file / project, I have C++ selected during the wizard process. Also, C::B frequently "locks" my open files (I notice an asterik on the tab by the file name) and I keep getting prompted about reloading the old file which of course I don't want to do so I have to keep hitting CTRL + S to 'unlock' the file.

3. How do I remove the "hello world" syntax when a new project is created and the main source is opened?

Thanks for all your help.
C::B INFO:
Version: 8.02

Did you Look in ../bin/release and ../bin/debug ?

Turn on full compiler logging and you should be able to see where it was placed.

You can also see where it should go under
Project -> Properties
Tab "Build Target"
Box "Output Filename"

Thank you Tim, I found the exe file. It was in debug.

Does anyone have any ideas regarding questions 2 and 3?

Thank you.

Question 2:
Verify the file extension is .c for c files and .cpp for c++ files.
No idea what else can be problem.

No exe file, but found it. I ran it as  Admin and just a flash on the screen, any idea no shell opened? I found: My program runs in codeblocks but if i start it from the outside it only flashes and closes immediately. on "http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/FAQ-Compiling_(general)". fix was://clear buffer, wait for input to close program std::cin.clear(); std::cin.ignore(INT_MAX, '\n'); std::cin.get(); return 0;, build gives me: error:" 'INT_MAX' was not declared in this scope". When I type (INT_) there are no MAX choices just int_fast or int_least.

You have to add the line
Code: [Select]
#include <climits>at the beginning of your code.
