If you go to this URL: http://www.codeblocks.org/downloads/binaries/ which is the official download URL of the IDE you will see a list of available binaries.

If you download codeblocks-20.03mingw-32bit-setup.exe and then install it a very interesting thing happens. Immediately after opening the IDE you will be faced with this error message:


When going to the compiler settings section you can easily see what the problem is. Here's the executable file names CodeBlocks is looking for:


And here are the actual executables that are shipped with the official 32-bit release of the program:


Can you see the problem?
The executables that the IDE is looking for do not exist. There is no such thing as mingw32-gcc.exe or others.
I don't know which ancient version of GCC used these names.
But it's fascinating that not even a single person from the developer team has taken the time to actually install their own official 32-bit release to immediately find out and fix this problem.

I would suggest that you do the following fully:1) At the top of the https://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/board,1.0.html forum read and go through the "IMPORTANT! READ THIS BEFORE ASKING FOR HELP!"
2) If you do want help then do not antagonize devs who are not paid.3) Learn to use the search facility.
I will be ignoring any posts from you if you have not fully done the steps above due to item 2) above.
