Code::Blocks crashes upon start up in Windows 7
« on: November 11, 2017, 06:05:12 pm »
As soon as I launch Code Blocks and set the default fortran compiler,  it crashes.

I have read a similar post on this topic and tried the solutions suggested but they have not worked. I tried uninstalling code blocks and reinstalling it, no joy.

I deleted the user/App data folder mentioned in the old post too, that did not cure the problem.

I have searched and there does not seem to have been created a default.conf file which I can delete or re-name.

I attach the *.rpt file.

I have also tried installing it as administrator, and then running it as administrator, but it still crashes.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

Where did you get the Code::Blocks built using wxWidgets 3.1 from?

Google search for code::blocks led me to source forge. Thatís where I downloaded the program from. Should I have obtained it from elsewhere?

Still you're not saying which version, but I guess is the new 17.xx rc1 wx3.1 based. Can you try the normal wx28 installer?

Hi, problem solved thank you.

I uninstalled the latest version of code::blocks that I obtained using a google search (which led me to source forge and the version was 17.xx).

I then googled code:blocks normal wx28 installer, but didn't have any hits, but I assumed that the version was just an older version, maybe more suited/tested for compatibility with windows 7 ?

So I found this page http://www.codeblocks.org/downloads/26 which contained  variations of the ...16....   build of code blocks but near the bottom of the page was the advice

"if unsure, please use codeblocks-16.01mingw-setup.exe!"

On the right hand side was a link to the code either via Sourceforge.net or FossHub

On downloading and installing it now seems to be working.

Now to try it with some fortran code.

Thanks again.

So the crashing build is codeblocks-17.xx-wx31-setup-RC1.exe ?
Can you try this build: https://sourceforge.net/projects/codeblocks/files/Binaries/17.xx-RC1/Windows/codeblocks-17.xx-setup-RC1.exe/download ?
It is the normal codeblocks-17.xx-setup-RC1.exe
