Crash when I try to compile
« on: November 13, 2016, 06:51:13 pm »
Hello

I have little knowledge about compilers and libraries and this stuff, we just started learning C in school last week and we
are using Code Blocks.
I had visual studio installed on my computer before installing code blocks.
I installed codeblocks then i installed something from Mingw, not sure exactly what, and it all worked.
now it doesn't.
Now when I try to compile the simplest of programs Code Blocks just crashes.

I used google and there was a thread here that was explained something about using 2 compilers or libraries or something that might cause this problem.

I tried to uninstall visual studio, reinstalled code blocks with mingw with all the extras checked during installation, still the program crashes when I try to compile.

Please help, Thanks!

I just figured out the problem.
I have created the new project inside a directory whose name was not in English... so I guess code blocks (or the compiler) has a problem when the path of the file to compile is not in English...might be worth to mention it somewhere...unless it's obvious for everyone else but me :)
