Do I have to have RC2 installed? Also do I just overwrite with nightly build or? Excuse me for my ignorance :(

No you do not need RC2. No DO NOT overwrite with the nightly build. :D

I guess I still need some kind of compiler right? MinGW?
Good Lord what was I doing...

Yes, you will need a compiler. MinGW is a good choice, but others are also available :). Look at the C::B wiki for some helpful info.

Best wishes,

Ok... Well I still have problems getting it to work :(
I installed Mingw 4.1.0. Downloaded latest nightly, extracted it and added "wxmsw26u_gcc_cb.dll" to the same directory. Now when I try and start codeblocks.exe I get this error:

"This application has failed to start because mingwm10.dll has not been found...."

I did a search and file is in C:\MinGW\bin

what did I miss this time ? :)

Type this in the command line.

Code: DOS
  1. set path=C:\MinGW\bin;C:\MinGW\mingw32\bin;
  2.

  1. set path=C:\MinGW\bin;C:\MinGW\mingw32\bin;
  2.  

It would be better if the previous path was also included as in:
set path=%PATH%;C:\MinGW\bin;C:\MinGW\mingw32\bin;

or

set path=C:\MinGW\bin;C:\MinGW\mingw32\bin;%PATH%

This might avoid other spurious problems.

Did you install MinGW by using the installer MinGW-4.1.0.exe? You should have used MinGW-5.0.2.exe.

Anyway, MinGW installer automatically adds its path to PATH. I never have had to do it manually.

Moreover, you might would like to update the win32api and binutils files. May be the GCC too if it is < 3.4.5 version.

Yeah used 4.1.0 (thought 5.0.2 was alpha)
can I just install over the old one?

How do I update api and binutils? GCC as well :)

No don't install over the other one. I would uninstall the old one. Then install the new one. It should have the api and binutils..... It will also install GCC for you. :D

Yes, it has the win32api, binutils and GCC. Anyway, probably not up-to-date. When you install MinGW choose candidate. Then when finish, download from MinGW website the latest win32api, binutils and GCC 3.4.5. Unzip the win32api archive and then copy and paste where MinGW is installed. Do the same for binutils and at the end for GCC 3.4.5.

Do not forget to downoald and install gdb 6.3 (the latest should be 6.3.2 IIRC).

Best wishes,
Michael
