Error "The compiler executive is not found"
« on: September 07, 2019, 07:01:47 pm »
I have just started to use code::bloocks .

I have successfully loaded an existing cbp file (code::blocks project file) into the environment .
I already get an error message "Can't find compiler executable in your configured search path's for Intel C/C++ compiler"

I don't understand why code::blocks searches for the Intel compiler, since I have specified under settings>compiler that I use the GNU/GCC compiler .

Please advise,

Thank you for reading,

You must change the compiler in your existing project, the other setting is the default compiler for new projects.

Dear  Miguel Gimenez,

When I try to change the compiler under file>properties, it changes back to Intel C/C++ compiler when I call those properties again, it hasn't changed . Does this really means I have to install the Intel compiler ?

By the way, thanks for your reply, hope we meet again,

Hankbonk.
