Problems, new to code::blocks and OpenWatcom
« on: March 26, 2007, 01:38:37 pm »
Hi folks,
I'm new to code::blocks and OpenWatcom. My problem is that can't compile a "Hello World" console app.
Can't find compiler in your search path for GNU gcc compiler
The auto detection for Watcom support was successful.
any suggestions ? Are there still some other packages needed for running code::blocks with watcom ?
Best regards....

In your case, default compiler is set to GCC which is causing the problem. Also you didn't change the compiler to OpenWatcom when you've created the Console project.

Change the default compiler first. Click Settings > Compilers and debuggers menu option. Click the combo Selected compiler and select OpenWatcom compiler. Now click the Set as default button.

Now create a new console project. It should compile.
