Trying to set up wxWidgets first time ever with no luck
« on: August 31, 2018, 10:54:47 pm »
I've never done something like this before so this is all new to me. I downloaded the wxWidgets installer and installed it. It is sitting here C:\wxWidgets-3.0.4. I followed a guy's video and he said to open up a command window and type this:

C:\wxWidgets-3.0.4\build\msw>mingw32-make -f makefile.gcc BUILD=release SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 UNICODE=1

So after I entered that I hit Enter and I got:

...not recognized and an internal or external command.

So can you assist?

Did you install Mingw first? There is a recent thread discussing which version is more suitable.
Also, there are precompiled versions of wxWidgets, may be yours is one of them.

I forgot to use the cd change directory in my command line. Now it looks like it's compiling. After that gets done I'll see if I can configure it within CodeBlocks. I may have more questions concerning how to do that.
