Thanks,

I been researching a little and i got it to work so far!!!!!

Thanks all for your more than elaborated help, i would never ever have found the issues without you guys, you are all super!!!

I have been experimenting a little though with wxSmith and wxFormBuilder ( cant get that to work, but anyway )  But i have also spent a few hours with Qt and it seems that qt is much easier to work with than the wxSmith. It is like more intuitive. On the other hand i have been reading that wxwidgets is very good aswell. Could anyone tell me why choose one over the other?

Thanks again for all the help!!! you are awesome!!

wx uses the native window implementation on every system, qt does not (as far as i know) but this is of topic for this forum...

There are binary downloads out there, but they won't match your compiler and you need that the library is compiled with the same compiler as your program...
Sorry, but where this binary downloads can be find? Geting rid of that anoing comandline would be really nice. Unfortunatelly have not seen binary downloads on that oficial wxWidget site. May be I am just to stupied, so apologies than.

Go to : http://wxwidgets.org/downloads/ and search for the keyword binaries.

Has the CB Wizard been fixed to use the wxTeam built Binaries?
