NOBUILD
« on: June 04, 2017, 12:37:56 am »
When I click on the compile and build button, nothing happens.

When I click on the play button, it says my (originally) empty file is not yet built, and asks if I would like to build it, now.

I click, yes.

Then, in the build log, it says it is checking for the existence of the file, and does absolutely nothing unless I hit "no" or "cancel."

When I select either one of those, the command prompt pops up, but doesn't show what it's supposed to.

In the default path, it says it can't find the executables.

Please, help.

I've tried to do a search on the pc for the .exe names, but to no avail.

How about installing a compiler?

does that not automatically come with the code::blocks download?

Yes we have a installer that has a compiler in it.

When I go to downloads, if I click on "download the binary release," should that give me everything I need?

Is there anything special I need to do to configure it?

I'm trying reinstall, now.

I selected the mingw setup.

I saw at the bottom that it should include the GCC compiler.

Thank you for all your help!

I will definitely be back if I have more trouble trying to set up.
