##### C::B installation from SVN repository on windows (can't figure it out)
« on: February 18, 2006, 02:47:20 am »
Hello!

I am currently using c::b 1.0rc2 but i wanted to switch to a newer version. I am using windowsME (sucks,i know, but my pc is ancient!!!) so I can't use a nightly build, due to the version of wx unicode dll included that can't run under windowsMe. I tried to replace it with a wx unicode dll that uses unicow.dll (or opencow.dll) instead (i built this dll) but this thing doesn't (of course) work. So i downloaded the svn sources and i am having some trouble so... to be specific:

a)If i use c::b 1.0rc2 to build the new one, i can't figure out how to link it with my wxWidgets dll version -if that is possible, and i cannot figure out where to put my wxWidgets path (i know it's somewhere at the build options but...) Is it the "custom variables->wxSuffix" that i must change or do i have to add something else?

b)BUILD file says: "Currently Code::Blocks' provided Makefile is for use with the MinGW/Cygwin GCC."
Where on earth is that Makefile? I cannot locate it so as to biuld it with MinGW (not Cygwin)

Thanks everyone

ps.: i tried to find an answer in the forum, but couldn't. Well, maybe i'd better learn how to "use" a forum before i try to build c::b from sources  :lol:

well... still trying. I still cannot find out where this Makefile is
As for building with c::b 1.0rc2... I don't get any prompt to define \$(#wx) any variable. Actually i don't find where this exists so i tried to add it myself at "custom variables"...

however i'got another problem as well. this is the log (i never understood how to get rid of '-Winvalid-pch'):

Project   : Code::Blocks

You can get an ansi version of wx widgets dll on the Nightly build forum page, I think. Look closer.

Not sure you can get an ansi version of C:B, but I thought one was posted at some point in time recently in Nightly Builds.

I will create today (or tomorrow), a recent ansi build and post it.

EDIT : should be today, don't want to keep you waiting that long
