Code Blocks not building
« on: September 02, 2011, 05:45:53 am »
Hi! I recently install the program on my Win 7 64bit system. However it doesn't seems to be building. I tried building my code yet I have no respond from the program. I tried the hotkey and the menu and it still refuse to work. If I click "run" the command box will show up if I choose to run without building. Is there anyway I can fix this problem?

P.S. I am using the 10.05 version

What exact problem did you meet?
Can you give us a step by step introduction?
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.

Do you have a valid compiler installed, and are the settings for the toolchaion correct ?
"Settings -> Compiler and debugger -> [your compiler] -> Toolchain executables"

Tell us the problem in details. What's your problem? How to reproduce? Did you install a correct compiler?....

That post still need more details, I can't help you unless you give me more details and steps.

Well I talked to my college professor about this problem, it seems that compiler is not working on the 64 bit system so that's why its not building. I tried to install a compiler for the 64 bit system but still don't have any luck on the program. Code blocks failed to detect the compiler and I even tried to manually open the location of the compiler on the tool executable but it can't detect the compiler either (on the list of executable it only shows compilers for the 32 bit system). So now I am still stuck with code blocks not able the build the program. Is there any way that I can get other compilers on the OS? Or is there any other solutions to the problem?

@Missinginaction:

What is the name and version of the Compiler you installed?

What was the installation path of the Compiler you installed?

Normally 32-bit applications run without problems on win7 64-bit.
And therefore the compiler should also work.

in my case the 32 bit compiler doesn't work, so I am still looking for a solution.

And I'm having the same problem.  :( I'm using Windows XP SP3 32-bit. I've installed Codeblocks 10.05 with MinGW.

When I try to run a program, nothing happens, and the build log is empty. But in my school Codeblocks 10.05 on the same operation system works properly. Maybe, I set up a wrong compiler or wrong settings?

Which compiler will work for my system and how to install it into the Codeblocks?

I figured out why I was having problems with the compiler. minGW was installed in the same program file as C++ so you have to change the default file location go to

"Settings -> Compiler and debugger -> [your compiler] -> Toolchain executables"

then

under compiler instillation directory change the location to where you installed C++ the old one should look like

this ----> C:\minGW

the new one should look like

this -----> C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\MinGW

couldn't find an answer to this problem so I posted.  ;D

I have the similar problem on my Mac. When I first start a project the Hello World program works correctly then I write a program, press build and run and the Hello World programme is still there. In my tool-chain executables it says /usr.

What? I guess you have trouble seeing a terminal...

No the terminal comes up after the hello world program correctly then after I build and run a new program the old Hello World program comes up in the terminal again as if I haven't changed the program. Apologies for my ignorance but I am new to programming..cheers

A fresh build log would help:
http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=FAQ-Compiling_(general)#Q:_How_do_I_report_a_compilation_problem_on_the_forums.3F

what operating system are you using?
Are you using projects, or simple files?
What do you change in the hello world program?
Does your anti virus blocks the compiler linker?

OS X EL CAPITAN

int main()
{
    int a=11, b=2;
    float modulus;
    modulus =a %b;
    printf("product =%f", modulus);
    return 0;
}

The above is my program. as you can see I have deleted the hello world part..
How do I check if the anti virus is blocking the compiler? I have ran programs before..

No I mean doing a full rebuild instead of doing a build! And, post the log.

You can either clean then build; or just use rebuild!

Someone else try to help the ignorant MAC OS user; I give up; if he/she can not do a rebuild instead of a build I can NOT help them.
