I want to know.
When I download "codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe", the MinGW in this pack, is offical MinGW or TDM-MinGW ?

Thanks a lot.

After I install "codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe", what should I do if I want to update GCC ?
In fact, I suggest C::B can packed with newest MinGW.

Remove the MinGW folder (or better: use the installer without the bundled compiler), "install" the compiler of your choice and setup Code::Blocks accordingly.

In fact, I suggest C::B can packed with newest MinGW.
With the next release. We won't change existing releases. This is the same as asking for a Visual Studio 6 with a VS 2010 compiler you know...

I have integrated SVN 6992 with MinGW 4.5.1. And it works well.

But there's a little problem.
When I install TDM-GCC, the files in "C:\MinGW" are very confused. :x
And GCC files in "codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe" are very tidy. :D

OK, I confess I have mysophobia in computer using.

I don't know what that shall mean. :shock: Can you re-phrase this, please?

BTW: We had a very good reasons to bunde the TDM release build instead of the MinGW one. The TDM has way less bugs especially in combination with wxWidgets. So it may not be wise to switch from the 4.5.1 TDM release to the 4.5.1 MinGW. However, you may have a good reason to do so as well... ;-)

My English is not very good. :P
I use TDM-GCC in fact, not MinGW.

I mean, to install tdm-gcc-4.5.1(Bundle Installer), there are too many files in the MinGW DIR not so tidy as "A".
"A": When I install codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe, the files in "codeblocks\MinGW\"

LOL, I don't know whether you can understand~

In a word: "codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe" is cool! (forget the GCC ver.)

After removing the MinGW folder below Code::Blocks installation folder, you can install TDM's MinGW there (or at any other place), if you don't want to have it in the root folder of your drive.
