settings:compiler
« on: June 27, 2016, 02:56:43 pm »
Fell at first step ... when I go 'settings: compiler and select the 'c++11' option I get
"environment error - cannot find compiler executable in your configured search path'

I have used c++ for a while a while ago , but not codeblocks.
I am on windows 7 home premium and downloaded the 'mingwsetup.exe'
TIA

can you compiler programs, without setting the flag, or does it give you some errors, like could not find compiler....

Do you have installed the compiler? Or only downloaded it?

What have you set in Settings->Compiler->Toolchain executables? Is this the correct path to your compiler installation?

this might help:
