Error 0xc000007b after reinstalling missing cygwin dll


When I opened Code::Blocks for the first time, an error appeared signifying that my cygwin1.dll file was missing. I checked, and yes, Cygwin didn't seem to be installed. I went to to install the latest version, and after adding the new installation's path to my environment variables, Code::Blocks began returning this error instead.

It continues to reappear until I use Task Manager to end the task. Apparently, this means I have the wrong version of the .dll, but I have no idea how to fix this. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

As you can read from the title of that error box the issue is with your selected compiler. At startup Code::Blocks runs several tests with your compiler of choice to determine its capabilities.
You should either reinstall your compiler (not Code::Blocks) or find a different one (for example, the MinGW 8.1.0 bundled with the large installer).
