version code blocks
« on: March 29, 2020, 09:15:17 pm »
Hello, I saw that a new version of Code Blocks 20.3 has been released. And it does not start on Windows7 32. That version 32 will not work for a 32-bit system? :'(

I think they stopped providing 32 bit builds.  That means you won't be able to run them in 32 bit Windows and would have to build from source yourself.  If your version of MinGW isn't new enough, it may not be doable.

If there is urgent need, we can do 32 bit builds. But 32 bit is really weird these days... :-\

I might have done something wrong; but 20.03 installed here ""C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeBlocks\codeblocks.exe" which is where the 32 bit version should be installed not the 64 bit!

Nope, you did nothing wrong but detected a bug in the installer that we forgot to see.

Luckily it will not really harm, as it is more a recomondation than a must under Windows... (but still not nice...)

Thank you, everything is fine, I will use codeblocks version 17. I thought that it would be for 32-bit systems, because I wanted to look at the new version. Thanks for the answer. No need to do for a 32-bit system.

Installed 20.03 and now when I try to open a previous project I get a Error - "Deactivating the compiler is most unwide. If you intend to open a project, you have to reactivate the compiler first."

Also, if I attempt to create a project there are zero project options/catagories/types of projects in the template dialog.

And a question, is it proper for mingw64 to be installed under C:\Program Files(x86)\CodeBlocks\ ?
I was under the impression is needed to be under the root directory to avoid spaces in paths.
