Open CBP project in windows
« on: March 04, 2007, 09:40:10 pm »
I am trying to install CodeBlocks from source in windows XP.
-I did the installation of MinGw
-Compilation of wxWidget 2.6.3.1
But when i get to the code::block compilation it says open the CodeBlocks.cbp project and you'll be prompted. Open the project with what?

I don't have a clue how to open the project, i've examine it with a text editor.
Please help.

Sorry, I wasn't specific enough, I have downloaded the nightly build, and in fact I see under src a CodeBlocks.cbp file, but what I don't know is how to open it in order to compile Codeblocks

Start the Nightly Build Codeblocks.
MainMenu=>File=>Open
Navigate to .../src/CodeBlocks.cbp
click on open

Thanks, finally got it working, there are two different documents, the nightly build makes sure that you know that a codeblock had to be installed, also indicates the workspace configuration. I was using:

http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Windows
 
That is a little misleading...
THANKS, now i'll try to make it run on linux (Ubuntu drapper)
