Run CB on Windows XP
« on: April 13, 2020, 06:35:37 am »
I downloaded codeblocks-20.03-32bit-setup-nonadmin.exe and installed it inside a XP VM. When I tried to run CB, it prompts me that some api-ms-win-string*.dll is missing. How can I work around this?

BTW, on the download page, I see Windows XP is listed along with 7/8/10, is the page outdated?

There was a topic about this somewhere.

Likely you have to install  Universal CRT. It can be found on Microsoft side as runtime for Visual Studio 2015+  ( https://docs.microsoft.com/pl-pl/cpp/windows/universal-crt-deployment?view=vs-2019 )  . Actually you simply have to, if you are using more or less contemporary mingw-w64 and dont want to face strange glitches.

Is this version of CB::B was built with i686-8.1.0-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v6-rev0.7z from MINGW Builds?
