Code Blocks & wxWidgets
« on: January 31, 2015, 02:45:49 pm »
I am not sure how this is going to be received and I am pretty sure, one of the mods is going to be like "dis boi be a noob" then hits the lock hammer. But I have a really really simple question how can I install or get my hands on a release, of wxwigets that does not require installing half a million programs just to compile it. In short all I really want to do is install wxWidgets so that it actually works without include errors or any of that, just something that I can make GUI with. Now to make a few things clear I have tried to install wxWidgets I've tried to make it work and I have done some looking up, but I seem to head into error after error. So really does anyone have a link to a working release of sort of wxWidgets that I can use without having to build a custom compiler to compile it.

Sorry to say (and to get out the big [not yet lock-]hammer):

Your post is absolutely useless without any information about your OS,compiler, the version of C::B you use/want to build,the version of wxWidgets etc.

This wiki-article might be helpful anyway: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=WxWindowsQuickRef

My apologies for not providing anywhere near enough information but I will try to write up the story.
I'll try to draw up sort of a idea of what I am trying to do, I run a some what modern system with windows 7 64bit. I most often use VS2012 Cross Tools Compiler for most things. I used the following command line to try to compile wx widgets with the "VS2012 x86 Native Tools Command Prompt"

The recommended command to use for MSVC is:

nmake -f makefile.vc BUILD=release SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 UNICODE=1
Quote
I get errors like "wx/setup.h: No such file or directory"
Above is the error I get pretty much all of the time, even if I tried older releases of wxWidgets. I went through the wizard and selected the GNU compiler and the directory of the wxWidgets which I built wx in.
I followed this video with the sole exemption of using the VS2012 compiler which seems to work for building wxWidgets.

Thanks for not locking the topic out right and sorry for not putting in more effort the first time.
Also I use code blocks 13:12 the very latest from what I know.

This all has absolutely NOTHING to do with c::b.... You are failing to compile wxWidgets with a Visual Studio Compiler....
A better place to ask such questions is https://forums.wxwidgets.org/
or the mailing list of wxWidgets...

[Edit:] After reading a second time it seems that you are trying to compile a wxWidgets program in c::b. If this is the case please read this: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=FAQ-Compiling_%28general%29#Q:_How_do_I_report_a_compilation_problem_on_the_forums.3F


[Edit2:] I think you have forget to add the lib/XXXX/YYYY path to the search paths for the compiler (XXXX and YYYY depends of your compiler and build version, probably it is lib/vcc_dll/mswu )

greetings

Something tells me I am better off figuring this out myself.
