Won't let me build?
« on: August 05, 2013, 03:08:18 am »
I recently installed CB. I made a new project and just tried running hello world that they set out for you. It keeps asking "It seems this project has not been built yet. Do you want to build it now?"

I keep clicking yes, and it just keeps popping up. It says it's looking for (file name is Test) Test.exe in one of the folders, but I check in there and there is no exe file in there.

"Checking for existence: C:\Users\ericreese20\Desktop\Test\bin\Debug\Test.exe"

Any ideas as to what is going on and how I can fix this?

The Build log is this

Checking for existence: C:\Users\ericreese20\Desktop\lkjk\bin\Debug\lkjk.exe

I go into that folder and there is no lkjk.exe file. I will hit build and run and it will ask if i want to build it since it hasnt bene built yet, i hit yes, and it keeps asking the same question until i hit no or cancel.

I am running Code::Blocks version (Where do I find version number? On the website all it states is that it is the binary version. It is the latest version on the website) on Windows 8
(Home). The compiler I use is GNU GCC Compilerl
version  (I don't know how to find my compiler version. I'd assume it is the latest version since I downloaded a few days ago)



Description of problem.
I posted in previous post. Won't let me build, keeps asking if I want to build.

Build log:
I posted it in previous post.

Crash report:
 Code blocks did not crash

]
I have already tried ...
Like four different IDE's and re-installing, and windows compatibility mode, etc. Tried googling
... but none of them worked.

Help->About?

GCC version  (I don't know how to find my compiler version. I'd assume it is the latest version since I downloaded a few days ago)
Run gcc --version in a terminal/console. You have to cd to the place where GCC is installed.

When you say terminal/console, do you mean command prompt? Also, what does "cd" mean

Of course.

Also, what does "cd" mean
That you need a tutorial explaining the basics how to use terminal/console/command prompt. :)

Thanks, learning a lot with command prompt. Where is it installed for you guys? I'm not even sure where I can find it. I'm usually a web developer type, not a programmer. Right now I have my dir in console as C: MinGW > libexec > gcc > mingw32 >4.6.2

then i typed "gcc --version" and came up with error as it is not a recognizable internal or external command, so I know i'm not doing something right

It may be at a lot of places. Search for gcc.exe or g++.exe.
