Code::Blocks not finding compiler on Windows 10
« on: September 08, 2019, 10:15:13 pm »
I installed Code::Blocks on Windows 10 and am trying to use this compiler:

https://www.allegro.cc/forums/thread/617424

When I open Code::Blocks, I get a gcc compiler not found error. I followed these instructions:

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/641797/codeblocks-environment-error/

no help. I checked my environmental path and everything looks right. I opened a command window and typed "gcc" and got a "gcc: fatal error: no input files. GCC terminated" error, telling me the compiler is working. I am able to compile from the command line. Any ideas?

What is the path to the GCC Compiler?
Did you configure Code::Blocks to use that path?
Remember C::B adds the bin folder so do not include it in the path!

Verify the tools use the same names as in Code::Blocks (Change the C::B setting to match your compiler)

Thanks for the help. I used the browse function [...] in the toolchains executables tab to browse to the mingw folder. I took screen shots of the settings in Code::Blocks and the path to the mingw folder in Windows but the files are too large to attach. Everything looks right to me.

The path to the compiler is "C:\ MINGW\i686-8.1.0-posix-dwarf-rt-v6_rev\mingw32." The compiler is set as GNU GCC compiler.

Per these instructions: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/641797/codeblocks-environment-error/, under the settings tab, selecting the compiler option and looking under the toolchains tab, Code::Blocks should set the path to the compiler automatically. The autoconfigure function does not find the path. The attached file shows the settings in Code::Blocks. Also per the instructions, the path can be manually and I used the browse key to set the path. Attached is a screenshot. Is there another way to set the compiler other than under the toolchains executables tab?

What are the filenames for the C and C++ compilers?

I see what you are saying. I went into the bin folder under the mingw32 directory and manually selected the proper files. Attached is a screenshot with the corrected settings, for future generations. Thanks.

So, you changed your mind about what compiler you are going to use.
