Code::Blocks errors
« on: July 30, 2021, 11:45:24 am »
I have been using C::B for some time now, and it worked perfectly. Recently I reinstalled Windows 10 and had to download all of my programs. I downloaded Google chrome and games etc. When I went to download code::blocks everything worked as usual but when i opened a project i was working on (before the reinstall) and clicked build and run, I got this error:

The program can't start because libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll is missing from your computer.
Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I decided to do what the error says and reinstall C::B. But after I did it I still have the same problem. I actaully even reinstalled it once more before looking for another solution. I read some post on Stackoverflow and the answer said to copy the missing dll file into the compiler's bin folder. Still same problem. There was a YT video of some guy who downloaded MinGW and copied it to c:\Program Files\CodeBlocks. I did this but it didnt help. Now, what I decided to do then was to download the missing file and manually put it in MinGW's bin. When I did this and clicked Build and run in c::b, I got a different error! It said this:

The application was unable to start correctly(0xc000007b).
Click OK to close the application.

I searched 0xc000007b on google and there was a list of things to do to fix it, and I tried to do some of them but none of them worked.

Does anyone know how I can fix this error? I have also asked this question on StackOverflow so I have a bigger chance of getting a response. It would be very nice if someone knew the solution

The problem is not in codeblocks, but in your program.
Make sure that you're using the same compiler for all executables and dlls.
Make sure you use a compatible libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll.
You cannot download one randomly from the internet and expect it to work.
You need to get this dll from the current compiler you're using.
