Strange...

The ImageMagick source package for Windows comes with FreeType version 2.1.5 (2003-09-02) but the latest version of FreeType is 2.3.5 (2007-07-02). I was trying to update it, but the "original" version comes with a folder named "autohint" and the downloaded library doesn't.

Anyway, to save hours of work and headaches, I decided to keep using the older version for the Windows build. Everything is now compiling correctly.

Now I will try to make the debug version. Wish me luck...

I have a silly question:

My project is now compiling correctly using MinGW, but at the end of compilation process this message appears:
Code: [Select]
-------------- Build: Release MinGW in ovat ---------------
Linking executable: bin\Release\ovat.exe
Output size is 5.72 MB
Running target post-build steps
mt.exe /nologo /manifest "bin\Release\ovat.exe.manifest" /outputresource:"bin\Release\ovat.exe";1
Execution of 'mt.exe /nologo /manifest "bin\Release\ovat.exe.manifest" /outputresource:"bin\Release\ovat.exe";1' in 'E:\Stein\My_Programming\ovat' failed.
Nothing to be done.
Why the .manifest file is failing to be created ?

mt.exe is part of Visual Studio, why do you think it should work?
If you think it should, verify that it is in the path in Code::Blocks.
Under "Global Compiler Settings" Window add path to mt.exe to "Toolchain Executables" "Additional Paths"

Repeating, I have no idea if mt.exe will work with MinGW GCC.

Tim, I have no intention to use Visual Studio tools...I'm deadly allergic to Microsoft...  :D

One of our programmers included this command on "Project Build Options->Pre/Post Build Steps", and I found it just now.

Sorry for disturbing you  :P
