Read this link http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_a_supported_compiler

NOTE: How to build GCC from source is completely off topic for this site.
FYI: You likely downloaded the GCC source!

No, it is unlikely to be a installer for about [at least] 30 days.
If you are on an 64 bit Windows OS; I can look up a link that tends to be one of the first ones to post new GCC for Windows.
But, he is only doing 64 bit releases. I mainly use a 32 bit computer; so, I have not used his GCC in over a year.
But, I can likely find a link to it somewhere.

Edit: Looks like he stopped updating the compiler it is on version 6.1; https://nuwen.net/mingw.html

Thank U for the reply.

Might U step me through the set up for code::blocks after I DL  MinGW Distro - nuwen.net.

Mainly the input boxes in Compiler menu.
