Hello! I'm totally new to programming alltogheter.
I have recently been following a guide for c++ (basics).
The video guide explains that a folder "sources" with the "main" file should be displayed after creating a new project.
However, this is not the case for me. I've included some picture as evidence.
I'm running the Codeblock zip version.
What could be the cause for my problem?

Looks like you have created an empty project.

The steps are okay.

Which version of C::b do you use ?

I'm not quite sure of what version I use. I downloaded the zip version of the program today from http://www.codeblocks.org/.

I printed the "about" section of the program, so you will hopefully understand which version I'm running.

This is a nightly, I doubt you've downloaded it from the site, you've got it somewhere on the forum...

haha. I think you're right. How blunt of me to not notice.
Is there any way to get the portable version (which actually works) from the main website?
I unfortunately don't have admin access on this computer.

If I see it correctly, there is no nightly from revision 7041, also the project-templates do not look like the default ones.

And our download-servwwr at berlios.de is down since about two days, so it's not possible, that you have downloaded it yesterday, at least not from an official server.

It looks like a special build from a third party.
That means we can not give support for it.

So finally I found the site you must have downloaded C::B from: http://codeblocks.codecutter.org/ .

Why didn't you tell it ?
Why did you lie ?

If you have issues with this version of C::B, please ask the maintainers there for support.
As written before, we can not give support for thirdparty (patched) builds of C::B.

Sorry !

I'm very sorry. I didn't lie, I simply forgot.
I must have visited the original website, not downloaded anything, and thereafter download a "portable codeblock version" from another website (probably the one you posted).
I appreciate your response, and I'm very sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.
