How to minimize install size of Code::Blocks 20
« on: May 28, 2020, 10:55:38 am »
All, I just upgraded from 16 to 20 (uninstalled 16 and installed 20) and the install size increased by almost 400Meg?? Where does this huge increase in size come from?

The 16 installer with MinGW is 83,783,938 bytes, for 20 it is  172,470,285 bytes that is nearly double the size compressed. I use Code::Blocks on a VM guest where space is at a premium.

What parts should I uninstall (the plugins?) to reduce the size of the install?

Have you downloaded a version with mingw included?

My codeblocks installation has ca 80MB, the mingw compiler part has ~400MB so this could explain your increase....
