Hello Everyone, I am new here.

I have recently decided to learn C++. I have found a tutorial, and it says to use Code::Blocks to edit. It looks like a extremely hand and useful tool for editing and running C++, but when I download and run the second file in the list from sourceforge, it says "Integrity check failed" and closes.
I try re-downloading it.
same thing.
I try downloading from BerliOS.
Webpage not available.
I try the super-risky /NCRC thing.
"integrity check failed"
I try to download the IDE and minGW seperately.
MinGW's installer is impossible.

Does anyone know the solution to the "Integrity check" issue?

what link did you tried?
have you tried this link:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/codeblocks/Binaries/Nightlies/2015/CB_20150604_rev10320_win32_setup.zip

this contains only c::b. For the compiler you can download it from here
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tdm-gcc/files/TDM-GCC%20Installer/tdm-gcc-5.1.0-3.exe/download
(note: this is not the official MingWW but the TDM-gcc build, but it should work like the same)

Alright, I downloaded the build you gave me. The compiler you gave me gives yet another "integrity check failed", so I decided to use cygwin. I watched this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVmd0P85D8o
On Youtube, and I belive I have followed all the steps. However, when I try to run code, Code::Blocks gives me the following error:
Cannot find compiler in you configured search paths for GNU GCC Compiler.
I followed the tutorial, I didn't specify GNU GCC, I specified Cygwin.
Do you know the answer now?
Should I be using Cygwin with this build?

Your original problem sounds like a download issue; and I think you might wish to find a download manager to fix it.

You need to tell Code::Blocks (CB) where CygWin was installed. http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Installing_a_supported_compiler#Compiler-neutral_setup_steps
(Note: Using the CB debugger plugin under CygWin is broken most of the time.)

Use a download manager to fix downloading issues? What do you mean? can you recommend one?

See these links

I am currently using the free version of http://flareget.com/
In the past, I used GetRight; but, I misplaced my paid license key and think it is no longer worth the effort to find it.
(Esp. since they seemed to have stopped updating it)

Alright, I've done that. I have the executable. When I run it it says that it's incompatible with windows 64-bit. Is there a version that's compatible?

PLEASE do NOT use the word "it".
I have no idea what it you are talking about.

Please give enough info to help you or I will just ignore you!

****FIXED****Alright, I've downloaded Flareget and successfully used it to downloaded the program. However, when I try to run the "codeblocks-13.12-setup.exe" file it says that it can't run the file because the file's incompatible with windows 64-bit. Is there a version that's compatible with Windows 64-bit?

have you donloaded it from sourceforge? their server are down at the moment sou you downloaded probably a corrupt version... Every 32bit executable runs on 64bit windows.
