setting up minGW to debugger
« on: March 13, 2015, 11:10:28 pm »
sorry if I jumped the gun and did not do a search for this request

I just spent all morning doing nothing, I had code::block set up on windows XP and it worked great but it got a virus and that is the end of that.
I am just trying set it up on windows 7, I just spent the last 1/4 hor installing minGW but can find the path name to set up for debugger
 
settings => debugger => default => executable path.

Sorry to be a worry, maybe I just installed the wrong program

This is the path to where your gdb.exe is located on your file system.
Use a tool for searching it to find it.

yes you are right but I can not find where it is to get the path.

Now it says zlib1.dll is missing and can not start.

Try to start it from command line to verify that your installation really works.
If it doesn't search the internet for details how to get it work.

Your loss.  The less you know about Operating Systems, the harder it is to use them.

This is good information - I ran GDB.EXE from the command line and received a message back regarding version and other information . I am assuming when this program is run within Code Blocks - I will get the errors as encountered.
