You have to build wxwidgets from source, search the wiki for details or go to the wxwidget's documentation.

You need to build wxWidgets on your system (or use wxPack) : http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=WxWindowsQuickRef (http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=WxWindowsQuickRef) .
Using a selfcompiled wxWidgets is normally the best way, because you will run in trouble, if the wx-binaries (e.g. wxPack) are not compiled with the same compiler version you use.


To compile C::B you canread this article (just the unicode-part), it should be helpful, even if it is a little bit outdated : http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Windows#Compile_Code::Blocks (http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Windows#Compile_Code::Blocks) .
