Problems compiling wxWidgets template
« on: August 01, 2008, 12:20:24 am »
Hi,

I'm having problems compiling the wxWidgets template provided by code blocks. I get the following errors:

-------------- Build: Debug in wxWidgetsTest ---------------

Compiling: resource.rc
C:\...\COMPUT~1\CODEBL~1\WXWIDG~1\resource.rc:3:24: wx/msw/wx.rc: No such file or directory
gcc: Files\wxWidgets-2.8.8\include: No such file or directory
gcc: Files\wxWidgets-2.8.8\lib\gcc_dll\mswu: No such file or directory
windres.exe: preprocessing failed.
Process terminated with status 1 (0 minutes, 0 seconds)
2 errors, 0 warnings

I recently compiled wxWidgets using MinGW and MSYS with the options: MONOLITHIC=1 UNICODE=1 SHARED=1, and I've configured the project with these options as well.

Does anybody have any idea what i've done wrong?

Code::Blocks' wxWidgets wizard doesn't support MSYS-compiled wxWidgets; you'll either have to adjust your project's options manually or do a regular mingw32-make build (see the wxWindowsQuickRef for details).

I tried a regular MS-DOS command line (i'#m on windows XP Pro SP3) mingw32-make build, but it didn't work, I just get the following:

C:\PROGRA~1\wxWidgets-2.8.8\build\msw>mingw32-make -f makefile.gcc
if not exist gcc_mswd mkdir gcc_mswd
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, -c "if not exist gcc_mswd mkdir gcc_mswd", ..
.) failed.
make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
mingw32-make: [gcc_mswd] Error 2 (ignored)
if not exist ..\..\lib\gcc_lib mkdir ..\..\lib\gcc_lib
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, -c "if not exist ..\..\lib\gcc_lib mkdir ..\.
.\lib\gcc_lib", ...) failed.
make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
mingw32-make: *** [..\..\lib\gcc_lib] Error 2

Have I done something wrong here?

Which project options do i need to change to change to get this working?

I also recieved the same project compilation errors using wxWidgets installed from wxPack, if that's worth anything.

I failed to notice another problem occurring in your first message: windres' dislike for spaces in paths. You should also try reinstalling wxWidgets to a path without spaces.

As to your error building wxWidgets from the Windows command shell, no idea what that's about; please post here if you figure it out so I can add it to the wxWindowsQuickRef FAQ.

I think it may be to do with the makefile wanting to use the linux mkdir command but instead getting the MS-Dos version. Though I can't be certain. It all compiled fine in MSYS, just not in DOS.

Also would windres accept using PROGRA~1 instead of "Program Files"? It would be nice to keep to keep all my programs in one place.

Ok, I've installed wxPack in a path without any spaces, but now I get linker errors saying I have undefined references :(.

Does anybody have any ideas? I've spent ages trying to get wxWidgets to work with Code::Blocks and it's like banging my head against a brick wall.

YES! Finally managed to get it working after using the instructions from here:

I tried a regular MS-DOS command line (i'#m on windows XP Pro SP3) mingw32-make build, but it didn't work, I just get the following:

C:\PROGRA~1\wxWidgets-2.8.8\build\msw>mingw32-make -f makefile.gcc
if not exist gcc_mswd mkdir gcc_mswd
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, -c "if not exist gcc_mswd mkdir gcc_mswd", ..
.) failed.
make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.

make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
mingw32-make: *** [..\..\lib\gcc_lib] Error 2

Have I done something wrong here?

Which project options do i need to change to change to get this working?

I've the same problem today :(
The only thing I've found about it is this: http://www.mail-archive.com/[email protected]/msg01859.html
I've tried several TDM installers + several binutils (I've seen a jens post mentioning that that might cause the problem)....

WinXP sp3 (I suppose)

Any ideas?
