Download the MinGW compiler system. I did this by downloading Dev-C++ and then removing the Dev-C++ compiler system, leaving MinGW. You should be left with the folders bin, include, lib, libexec, and mingw32. Then rename the folder to MinGW and place it in the root directory of your drive

this will give you an older GCC off course

Yes, but I wanted to give the simplest way of getting to the compiler.

Nice! Short and simple tutorial. What I would like to see, is a step-by-step howto on the compiling and setup of the environment if one wants to do wxWidgets development in Code::Blocks using the Wizards. I can't seem to figure out what to put into the environment variables for my MINGW setup.

Anybody up to the challenge?

Hehe. That's what I'm trying to figure out how to do. If I finish I'll post the instructions on my site.

I wouldn't add the bin dir , due to recent code changes it could cause some problems : see here : http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?topic=4985.msg39081#msg39081

Works fine for me, but I've put that warning up :).

Nice; you may add a link to the existing mingw install in the wiki :

Thanks, I've changed it, that's much easier.
