Hello AndrewCot,
Thanks for your efforts.
Me and some other guys at msfn.org  were discussing about the latest version of Code::Blocks able to run on Windows XP SP3 x86.
And unfortunately release v20.03 had the symbols browser disabled on purpose. Making release release v17.12 the most viable option. It would be interesting to try your unofficial x86 SVN, to see if it has a proper symbols browser. But I cannot try it, because this link does not work anymore...:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/unofficial-cb-installers/
Please advise.

Sadly, the version of Dr. MinGW used (0.9.1) does not run on XP-SP3, so the program will not start (I have just tried).

For the v20.03 release this incompatibility can be solved, or at least worked around, with the method posted by SiZiOUS here:
https://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,23770.0.html
Which comes down to using Dr. MinGW 0.8.2 binary files instead

I have uploaded here a zip containing the Codeblocks folder, you can use it as a portable application (no installation). This link will last 24 hours from now.

I am a C::B developer, the files are official and updated to revision 12857 (head-1).

Thanks for compiling and sharing that Win32 rev12857!
It seems to startup fine on Windows XP x86 with the mentioned drmingw-0.8.2 files, and it has the symbols browser. :)
Noted that the link will expire soon, I will keep it stored locally. 

(A minute ago I also found a similar Win32 package in google drive from Xaviou here:
https://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,25008.msg0/boardseen.html#new
Working too, but somehow it has all these .a libraries in the root of the program?)

The libraries are intended for plugin developers, I removed them from the ZIP to reduce size.

You can grab the required XP files from https://github.com/acotty/CodeBlocks_Unofficial_Testing/tree/master/src/exchndl/Win_XP
The C::B official installer does not detect the OS it is installing on and only has one set of Dr Mingw files, where you need 6 sets to ensure that the installer works on 32 V 64 bit OS's and then XP or 7 or 10+ is also needed.
Gerwin,
I would advise leaning how to build C::B for XP yourself as then you can build the latest when you want to upgrade it. If you want to give it a go have a look at the following doc as a starting point:

It has been long since I used the installer version, instead of the zip. The few remaining Windows XP tinkerers are generally willing to do a few manual steps, in order to make some current build work on that OS. It is already a win to have a current 32-bit build without Vista+ API calls. Nobody is asking for more.

Thanks for the link to the Windows build documentation. I will give it a try when I have some need/interest in a newer SVN version. First I will work a bit with the package supplied by Miguel.
