CodeBlock cannot find header file
« on: November 11, 2012, 06:27:20 pm »
I started learning CodeBlock from yesterday and I want to use MinGW compiler with it. How can I use MinGW with CodeBlock. I asked this question because. I am testing a database connection program in C. I include these files this way in CodeBlock
Setting->Linker Setting-Add
C:\SQLAPI\lib\libsqlapiddll.a 
C:\MinGW\lib\libuser32.a
C:\MinGW\lib\libversion.a
C:\MinGW\lib\liboleaut32.a
C:\MinGW\lib\libole32.a

And this is the code but it is giving error - C:\MinGW\lib\cppmsql.c   2   fatal error: SQLAPI.h: No such file or directory
c Code -
Code: [Select]
#include <stdio.h>  // for printf
#include <SQLAPI.h> // main SQLAPI++ header
int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
    SAConnection con; // create connection object
      try
    {
        con.Connect(
            "localhost:[email protected]",     // database name
            "root",   // user name
            "");   // password
                  //optional client name not provided
        printf("We are connected!\n");
        con.Disconnect();
        printf("We are disconnected!\n");
    }
    catch(SAException &x)
    {
        try
        {
            con.Rollback();
        }
        catch(SAException &)
        {
        }
        printf("%s\n", (const char*)x.ErrText());
    }
     return 0;
}

How can solve this problem. Thanx in advance for any suggestion or guidance

You have to setup include search paths.

AS per documentation under the For your Project option 1st step is - Right click on the project then select Build options but unfortunately I am not getting this option. I'm using CodeBlock 10.05

No I simply created a New File and saved it as cppmsql.c after writing the above code and adding the libraries which I mentioned in my post. And compiler is GNU GCC compiler

Is this header present at all?
Have you carefully read the posted link and/or the other bullets in the FAQ?

Then you know the path, just add it in the project build options...

No, because you don't make a difference between a compiler and linker errors.

Make sure you read this: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=FAQ-Compiling_%28errors%29#Q:_How_do_I_troubleshoot_a_compiler_problem.3F
carefully and understand it! Until then you won't progress much.

Thankx a lot for your guidance. program is compiled successfully. But Now next problem is standing in front of me.
On compilation I am getting this message
Quote
-------------- Build: Debug in database ---------------

Compiling: main.cpp
Linking console executable: bin\Debug\database.exe
Output size is 38.12 KB
Process terminated with status 0 (0 minutes, 1 seconds)
0 errors, 0 warnings

But when I run the program it opens a error message dialog box -
Quote
The program can't start because libsqlapid.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
I made all the setups for linker which is C:\SQLAPI\lib\libsqlapiddll.a from build option
Guide me please
