What version of windres.exe are you using?
Get rid of all the spaces in the paths used by the project; some version of windres has problems with spaces.

Is the file resource.rc an text file?

I've got the windres.exe version contained in mingw with codeblock 10.05. I see all paths and looks well. I also have the environment variable path pointing to bin directory of MinGW. Another message in log that not appear in the post before was:

The actual directory is not valid 
windres.exe: preprocessing failed

Do I need to download the src files for codeblocks??

Please I need some help

The actual directory is not valid  

Remove the rc file from CB project; re-add the rc file, using relative path might be needed also.

The directory of the project was invalid i don't know why. I moved the folder of the project and it runs. Thank you very much
