Compiler Problems
« on: August 15, 2012, 07:48:41 pm »
Hey -

I just downloaded C::B at the suggestion of a book. I downloaded it for MacOS, and when I try to compile the default main.cpp when I create a new project it gives me the error, ""helloWorld - Debug" uses an invalid compiler [YOUR ANSWER IS ALREADY THERE. SEARCH THE FORUMS!]. Probably the toolchain path within the compiler options is not setup correctly?! Skipping..."

I'm not sure what this means, but I do not that it in fact did not compile anything. When I download the the C::B application do I also need to download a compiler? The book was not very specific.

Any help would be awesome.

Code::Blocks NEEDS a Compiler to Compile code!!
