As the title states, I keep getting 4 errors. These errors are:
ld.exe||cannot find -lwxmsw29d_core|
ld.exe||cannot find -lwxbase29d|
ld.exe||cannot find -lwxpngd|
ld.exe||cannot find -lwxzlibd|
Please help me! I am just compiling the first default program that it provides.

Read this link http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=WxWindowsQuickRef

Then give more info.

Edit: starting list of newbie mistakes.
1. Failure to build wxWidgets
2. Not building the version of wxWidgets you are trying to use.

Edit2: wxmsw29d_core means version 2.9 debug multilib is not being found.

Okay, so I tried to re-run the set up wizard, and I think i found the problem. When i am on the last steps of creating it, it says
"A matching Debug configuration cannot be found in the WxWidgets directory described. This mean the project will not build."
I put the exact location of the WxWidgets folder i downloaded. Any tips?
