You have downloaded the source distribution. Try downloading the windows installation program here

I have tried all three installation files.  They are the Win32 installation programs, not the source distributions.  However, none of them gave me a codeblocks.exe.

My setup:
C: Secondary ntfs partition
D: FAT32 storage partition
K: Primary ntfs boot partition

I'm using the default installation path, C:\codeblocks, but that doesn't seem to be working.
Any thoughts?

Do you think it might have something to do with the antivirus you 're using? I can't think of anything else right now. I mean, there is no reason why every file in the distribution installs fine, except the executable...

After turning off the antivirus, ZoneAlarm, and just about every program running, I still couldn't get the executable.
However, I went back to Add/Remove programs, uninstalled it, then reinstalled it. That worked like a charm.

I'm guessing ZoneAlarm is the culprit here.

I had the same problem with a fresh install of windows XP with no antivirus.  If this happens, it seems that the only solution is to uninstall codeblocks and try again.

Same Problem. No antivirus backround Programm. unins000.dat contains only the 'console_runner.exe', no 'codeblock.exe'.

If I 'm going to track this down, you should post some info on your system like OS, service-packs etc.

Sorry for the "it won't work" post, today is my stupid day. :oops:
It seems that the error reside in the installation routine, uncheck both options (Create a desktop icon, Create a Quick Launch icon) and the 'codeblock.exe' is missing.

I have got the file but it says every time that it has encountered an error and needs to close.
I run XP with service pack 2.

I used http://sourceforge.net/projects/innounp/ innounp to unpack files from CodeBlocks-1.0-beta3.exe
and then copied the files from {app} directory into c:\CodeBlocks
I unpacked it with:
mkdir test
innounp.exe -x -dtest CodeBlocks-1.0-beta3.exe
and the files will be unpacked to test directory.

It is fixed now. I am not updating the setup file for Code::Blocks 1.0-beta3, but the next setup will behave correctly.

I will add a notice, though, on the download page.

Thank you all.
