Problem Building project with Code::Block
« on: October 04, 2010, 12:31:23 am »
Hi,
I am an absolute beginner in C++ and I installed full version of Code::Block in my Laptop. I tried to run the "Hello World!" program as the first program. I received the following error.

I tried to reinstall Code::Block, but it gave me the same error. I also tried to google the error but no success.

I appreciate you experts to help me remove the problem.

Thanks a lot

Did you re-install the Compiler?
If not, I suggest trying it.

I tried to run the "Hello World!" program as the first program.
some suggestions:

1, give us the full steps how you create and build the "hello world" program.
2, the minimal sample code of the "hello world" program.
3, use .cpp (not .c).

If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

I did it in 2 ways.
First I created an empty file main.cpp. I put the following on the file:
Quote
#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

 int main(){
    cout <<"Hello World!" << endl;
    return 0;
 }
Then F9.
Second through New>Project>Console Application
choosing C++ and naming the project as test1. Then F9.

I took your advice. The file is called main.cpp not  .c. But the problem still exists.

I run the new  simple program:
Quote
using namespace std;

 int main(){
     int a=2;
//    cout <<"Hello World!" << endl;
    return a;
 }
It works perfectly. Therefore the problem should be in iostream.
Am I true? Should I add some path to compiler folder?

No, these folders were added by compiler by default.

I have no idea about other error.

BTW: you can put your project file in a folder WITHOUT a space in the folder path.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

If you have another MinGW in your system path, remove it.
If you have an MinGW in the folder x:\mingw for any drive letter in place of x rename or delete the MinGW folder.

Thanks Tim. I searched all the hard drive.  The only path is "C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\MinGW". There is no other one. Did you mean that by system path?

no, he means the PATH environment variable
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

I checked this:
My Computer>System Properties>Advance [tab]> environment variables
Obviously there is no "C:program files/.../mingw" PATH in there. Should I add any. If yes which PATH. Because Code::Block has many folders one inside another, I can't figure out which one.

If another installation is in system-path, it should be no problem (if the installation you use is complete), but if any of the disks has a \MinGW folder an installation in another folder might break.

While compiling, C::B prepends the compilers bin dir to the path-variable (if your compiler installation dir is setup correctly in C::B).

Dear Jens,
How should I check if my compiler installation dir is setup correctly in C::B?
