Can't type in Code::Blocks

(1/3) > >>

I recently reinstalled Code::Blocks after previously having it on my computer.  The problem is that after the install, I can't type in the code window at all.  I hate to bother the people on this forum but I'm not sure what to do.

I'm using Windows 10 on PC.

Is the code window visible?

If you click on the code window, does the cursor show up blinking in the window?

The code window is visible, but clicking on it does nothing, including no cursor.

Try bringing up a new code window.

Menu "Settings"
Select "Edit startup script"

NOTE: Do not edit this script file!

Does the cursor show up in this window?

I got a popup window saying:

A script is trying to execute a privileged command:

Operation: COPYFILE

C:\Program Files(x86)\CodeBlocks\share\codeblocks\scripts/startup.script -> C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\CodeBlocks\share\codeblocks\scripts/startup.script

(then it has a dropdown menu that says "Choose your action:")

1) DENY execution of this command
2) ALLOW execution of this command
3) ALLOW execution of this command for all scripts from now on
4) Mark this script as TRUSTED for this session
5) Mark this script as TRUSTED permanently

then it says:

"Scripts may contain malicious code so by default you are asked before a privileged command is allowed to execute.  Only allow execution of this command if you trust the source of the script or are confident enough that the above command is harmless to your system.

If you mark this script as 'trusted' you declare that you trust this script and explicitly allow it to execute privileged commands.  You should only trust scripts that you wrote yourself or if they come from a trusty source."

Not sure what to do at this point.
