DoxyBlocks plugin version doesn't match!
« on: September 28, 2011, 11:21:43 pm »
Hi all! First of all I would like to be greatful to you for your work on CodeBlocks, it's a great IDE.

My problem is related to DoxyBlocks plugin. I downloaded the CB source code, wxWidgets libraries, and so. I made some changes to the plugin (to allow XML .Net-styled comments) and all compiles fine and runs well (I can debug normally). But, when I try to use the DLL of the plugin in a installed CodeBlocks 10.05 (using the binaries for Windows), the IDE shows a message at the bottom right corner saying this:

"One or more plugins were not loaded.
This usually happens when a plugin is built for a different version of the Code::Blocks SDK.
Check the application log for more info.

List of failed plugins:


I have been working with the source code of the last version (last tag in the repository I mean, corresponding to the last CB binary installation available). So the version is the same for the SDK. Why can this happen? Is there any workaround? Can I hack the version of the DLL?

Thanks in advance, this is really frustrating :(

Do yuo want to use a plugin build for svn trunk HEAD revision with codeblocks 10.05?
If yes, this won't happen. The API and ABI is different for the two versions.

You have two choices:
1. Use a nightly build. There DoxyBlocks is included by default. See the Nightly build subforum
2. Try to build DoxyBlocks for 10.05, if I remember correctly this was not possible, because DoxyBlocks required the new APIs.
    Here is some info for linking a plugin to a nightly build: (should be similar for 10.05)
(most of the time I ignore long posts)
[strangers don't send me private messages, I'll ignore them; post a topic in the forum, but first read the rules!]

Thanks oBFusCATed for your answer. I'm not using the source code from the HEAD version, but from the one that corresponds to the 10.05 version. If I build CodeBlocks and the plugin, then it can be used in the previously compiled CB, but if I try to use the same DLL in a CB I have installed in another machine, for example, that message appears and it doesn't work :(

I will try later using the link you posted, wish me luck!

Thanks! It works now!
  • I've installed CB 10.05 from the downloadable binaries.
  • I've compiled wxWidgets 2.8.10, which is the used by CB 10.05.
  • I've downloaded the source code corresponding to CB 10.05 (the compressed tar.gz file).
  • I've set the Global variable "wx" to the wxWidgets 2.8.10 folder.
  • I've compiled CB source code.
  • I've copied DoxyBlocks folder downloaded from SVN (last version available) to plugins/contrib folder, inside my CB source code folder.
  • I've modified the DoxyBlocks project, replacing Search Directories of the linker by the folder of my CB installation.
  • I've modified the Linker settings and the only libraries I've put there are: codeblocks, wxscintilla, wxmsw28u_gcc_cb. With no lib prefix nor .dll sufix.
  • Then I've packed all to create the cbplugin file and now I can install it with no version problems in my installed CB!.

Thanks again!
