Installing code::blocks?
« on: March 16, 2021, 03:36:42 pm »
I'm new at this. I mean really new. I finally started to understand programming using a Just Basic course but want to learn the real thing.
The problem, can't install code::blocks. I keep on getting an error message. I tried downloading the program from the two sites available but one doesn't open  (BerliOS) and, it would seem, that the one on seems to be corrupted or has suffered change.
I can follow instructions in the Internet to stop my computer from blocking the installation but I'm afraid that I would be opening the doors to some kind of virus attack if I do. So, am I being over cautious?

Can you be more explicit and report OS, downloaded version and the exact error message?

Berlios has been abandoned for a long time

You have several choices depending on your OS. If you are on Windows, I suppose the best choice for you is a version including Mingw (compiler set), 32 or 64 bits.
Windows 10 64 bits (21H2), svn C::B (last version or almost!), wxWidgets 3.2.1, Msys2 Compilers 12.2.0, 64 bits (seh, posix : gcc, g++ and gfortran in C:\msys64\mingw64) or 32 bits (dwarf2, posix  in C:\msys64\mingw32).
