Cannot create a new project on codeblocks 10.05!
« on: March 21, 2012, 05:12:10 pm »
Hi to All:
I'm a newbie. I just installed codeblocks 10.05 on Windows recently but cannot create a new project.

When I click "create a new project" a dialog appears with these categories:
  projects
  build targets
  files
  custom
  user templates

When I select "projects", nothing appears in the window below "Category:".  To the right of "Category:" is some kind of pulldown menu that says "<All Categories>" in it.  When I click on "<All Categories>", nothing appears below.  At all times the "go" button is grayed out, so it is impossible to create a new project... as far as I can see.

What's my problem? Help pls bcoz I need to do my final year project.  ;D

Many thanks,
Warren

Reinstall and make sure you've enable the contrib plugins.

Also please don't start useless polls!

IMO, the project templates haven't been found. I do not have Windows, but in Debian, it is the /usr/share/codeblocks/templates directory.

(1) You should have something like "codeblocks\templates" on your disk. Do you have such dir?
(2) If yes, then can you access the dir?
(3) What's the contents of the dir? It should contain bags of files: *.cbp files (templates for Code Block Project files), headers, source files (default code generated for the projects) and other files.

If you cannot find the dir, try searching for *.cbp files. There should be a directory on your disk containing many such files. Because you have just installed, it must be the dir with templates. If you find no such dir then

(4) Can you extract files/directories from your installation package?
(5) If yes, then search the package for the templates and extract the whole dir to its proper place in the application file tree.
