You haven't built it as monolithic.
To link the sample code with your library, add all libwxmsw26_*.a files in the link libraries.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Settings->Compiler->Linker->Link libraries  is the global compiler options.
You should look in "Project->Build options" for the project-wide and per-target compiler/linker options.
Be patient!

 :( I'v done in "Project->Build options" now, I added in Linker->Link libraries = ..\..\..\wx\lib\gcc_lib\libwxmsw26.a (and relative and not)
Directories->Compiler = C:\wx\include (and relative and not)
Directories->Linker = C:\wx\lib\gcc_lib (and relative and not)
but I have same issue, it's something witchcraft  :( :( :( :(

You 're still having wxmsw as a link library.
I told you before: replace it by wxmsw26...

I have only libwxmsw26.a and added already it everywhere....
Project->Build options->Linker = C:\wx\lib\gcc_lib\libwxmsw26.a (both wxWidgets Application and default)
Project->Build options->Directories->Compiler = C:\wx\include (both wxWidgets Application and default)
Project->Build options->Directories->Linker = C:\wx\lib\gcc_lib (both wxWidgets Application and default)

:( I don't know where should I add libwxmsw26.a else? :(

I messed with my setup & I cannot figure out what is wrong.  Does anyone have any ideas what could cause this?


Code: [Select]
$ mingw32-make -f ./makefile.gcc USE_XRC=1 SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=release
UNICODE=0 VENDOR=cb
if not exist gcc_mswdll mkdir gcc_mswdll
/usr/bin/sh: -c: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file
c:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\bin\mingw32-make.exe: [gcc_mswdll] Error 258 (ignored)
if not exist ..\..\lib\gcc_dll\msw mkdir ..\..\lib\gcc_dll\msw
/usr/bin/sh: -c: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file
c:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\bin\mingw32-make.exe: *** [..\..\lib\gcc_dll\msw] Error 258

   I am answering my own question before I  post it in case someone else has a momentary lapse of intelligence and doesn't read the installation.  the the makefile.gcc doesn't work under msys.  It's for mingw using the windows command prompt.  :P

Hello joe, try to compile separate MinGW's compilator... or without empty space in compiler's path (NOT c:\Program Files).
I compiled in MinGW successfully but without "./" i.e.  mingw32-make -f makefile.gcc USE_XRC=1 SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=release UNICODE=0 VENDOR=cb

This is 99.99% certain the problem.

Actually, my problem was that I was trying to use msys to compile it, and it clearly says in the instructions to compile using the makefile under windows that it will not work with msys.

hehe, no that isn't going to work :lol: was it so unclear that you didn't have to use msys?
