Title: Won't compile! Help!!!
Post by: Zeus on August 08, 2005, 03:44:35 am
Omg when I go to compile....it only works when I have a project open. If I go to compile a program under "Opened Files" all the compile options are greyed out except; "Compile Current File" "Errors --> Clear All Errors" and "Compile Options". When I click "Compile current file" , it gives me an error saying

Quote
cl.exe /nologo   /c "C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\prog.cpp" /Fo"C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\prog.obj"
Command execution failed...

But when I have a project open, I can compile it just fine (except when there's bugs...and if anyone can tell me where the debugger is for Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 is that would be much appreciated). It's very weird. So again

Here's the problem in a nutshell for anyone who didn't feel like reading what I posted above..

The program won't compile unless I have it inside of an opened project.

Please help, and thank you all

command execution failed usually means it can't find the executable.  make sure cl.exe is in the PATH or the directories CB searches (check compile->compiler options->programs->additional paths).

thanks for the response

yes cl.exe is the path for the C and C++ compiler option boxes...

here's a pic

OK, you're right I get the same behavior.  The compiler paths aren't used if the source file doesn't belong to a project.  I'd submit a bug if one hasn't been submitted already.

Please do, the "compile single file" option was implemented in the last minute, so it needs a lot of work.

we should remove this "Compile current file" possibility anyway

Oh no... it's the most asked-for feature! We should fix it instead.

Oh, sorry should have post that I already reported it yesterday.  Btw, it only happens when using VC++ Toolkit 2003 as the compiler.  It works correctly when GCC is being used (haven't tested other compilers).
