Help! I'm stuck opening a new project (from C::B Wiki)
« on: July 23, 2015, 07:42:41 am »
I'm using the C:B Wiki and the tutorial for opening a new project but I stuck at the (3rd) dialog box called C/C++ Source with Finish at the bottom.  There is a file name shown in the top of this d-box in the Wiki that reads C:\HelloWorld\hello.cpp and all the boxes at the bottom are checked. 

I have no idea as to what to enter in this box under "File name and path"

I installed C::B on my D:\ Drive.  I did a windows search and found hello.cpp is in My Documents folder. So I tried D:\My Documents\hello.cpp. But the path didn't work.  So I'm stuck there!!!

I may have one more problem! In the C::B Wiki there is a Source (Folder) shown in the management window, but it's missing on my installation. (The Pic in the Wiki may be from an older version of C::B I'm using 13-12 RC2.

Can some one please walk me through the rest of the Wiki tutorial.

I sure would be nice if the C:B team would upgrade and test these tutorials to make sure they work.

It would be nice if you linked to the wiki directions you said had the problem.

I am guessing this is the Wiki page in question http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Creating_a_new_project

Edit2: I would suggest restarting the direction and only changing C: to D: to see if the directions work for you the first time.
I have never used those directions; so, I have no idea if they work; but, spaces cause problems in some areas; So, i never use spaces if I can help it.

Did a quick run though of the Wiki direction stopped at first build command step.

Changed "Folder to create project in" from "C:\" to "C:\CB_WIKI_PROJECTS"
I had to do the above because something locked up my CB when I did it in "C:\" likely was AntiVirus or windows security caused issue.

Path I used to add file: C:\CB_WIKI_PROJECTS\Helloworld\hello.cpp
