Unofficial Code::Blocks installers for Windows x86 & x64 Janurary 2022

<< < (2/7) > >>


--- Quote from: AndrewCot on August 06, 2021, 02:14:10 am ---The x64 info is included in the original post above. The readme on the Sourceforge file download page is the latest and includes the build info for x86, which was updated when I did the x86 installers.

OK, I see it, it is "Built with MSYS2 mingw64 GCC 10.3 using the latest MSYS 2 release".

--- Quote ---All of the installers include the CbLauncher.exe as the installers include everything the existing ones do plus some more files.  Looks like I need to do a cross check on the start menu shortcuts between the NSIS and ISS scripts as the ISS script does not include adding a shortcut like the NSIS installer does.

Do you mean by "support portable" mode by adding the shortcut into the ISS installers?  If not, can you please elaborate or point me where I can find out what I need to do to add the mode in.

I mean in the install page, you can tell the user, if they want to use C::B in portable mode, they should run "CbLauncher.exe", otherwise, they can run "CodeBlocks.exe". Or maybe, a better idea is to add a new shortcuts as "run Code::Blocks in portable mode".

Generally, I think most people don't know running CbLauncher.exe will run C::B as portable mode.


Thanks for the explanation.

I have added this to my list to look at when I get to the issue of updating the installers to work with a non admin user account as the current installers need admin rights to installed that apps in the program files directory. Currently you need admin rights to run the cblauncher for it to work, which is not acceptable IMHO.
