Code::Blocks with Imagecraft ICCAVR version 8.
« on: April 10, 2010, 08:12:50 pm »
Imagecraft ICCVAR version 8 is using Code::Blocks IDE and I have just installed the package. The Code::Blocks IDE "New Project" is not working. If I click on the "File->New->Project" pull down menu a floating window titled "New From Template" is opened with the instructions to click on the left hand list and select and icon from the window. Unfortunately no icons are visible, so there's nothing to click on. Is there a .ini file somewhere that is missing?

What installer (if any) did you use.
If it is provide by Imagecraft, ask them what you have to do.

If they use our installer, make sure you installed the scripted wizard plugin.
In doubt (and if they use our installer) run it again and install just everything.

Hi jens.

It was the Imagecraft installer so I'll refer it back.

Thanks for the help.

Interesting to notice that I cannot find the Code::Blocks IDE on their webpage. They seem to have an own IDE, developed by themselves. What exactly did you download?

The ImageCraft IDE is a highly modified version of SVN 5783. It currently is in release candidate 3.

Questions concerning the ImageCraft version of CB should be directed to the ImageCraft mailing list at [email protected] or [email protected]

This is the pre-release of ICCAVR version 8. Imagecraft used their own IDE in all previous versions and are moving to C::B for this release. Anyway, I referred back to them and now have a working version.

I'll let you know how it goes.

I will post more info when done downloading.

Interesting. Hopefully they comply with GPL then...

It would be only fair at least to tell that such branch exists. :(

ImageCraft will honor all GPL requirements.

Currently the code is in RC. It is not finalized.

To whom would you like ImageCraft to tell what?

I'm sure they're willing to comply.

The ImageCraft IDE is specific to the ICC compilers only. It is not a branch of CB. It is not for generalized use. And it is in no way a competitor of CB.

The CB Plug-ins that Imagecraft wrote to run under Code::Blocks; are they required by GPL to release them in source-code? Or does the Code::Blocks GPL have the Linking Exception that permits non-GPL plugins?

Writing binary plugins for C::B is explicitly allowed.

To whom would you like ImageCraft to tell what?
If they modify the core of the C::B IDE (alias SDK) I'd say it's worth to let us know what they changed and why because it might be for interest to others, too.

The ImageCraft IDE is specific to the ICC compilers only. It is not a branch of CB. It is not for generalized use. And it is in no way a competitor of CB.
From this thread I had the understanding that ImageCraft uses a version of C::B which they have heavily modified. What I see on the Webpage is another IDE where I am not sure if this is C::B based, or not. However, if they sell the C::B IDE in their packages then it's well hidden for the moment which surely is suspicious. If it's not ready, then this is just fine, but I read in this forum thread that there are obviously users around that use this IDE and ask for support. So I would welcome some clarification at least, don't you think?

As I indicated, ImageCraft will plublish all code required by the GPL.
For now, it's not ready.

When published, you will be able to peruse as you wish.

However, in my opinion, there is nothing in the changed source you'd want to use. The thing is so directly targeted at the ImageCraft compilers.

As I also indicated previously, users asking for support should be directed toward ImageCraft.com and the ImageCraft mailing list.

Thanks for the clarification. That's what I wanted to know basically. :)
