CB under windows 11
« on: October 20, 2022, 03:07:24 pm »
Hello code-blockers ! I have a problem and hope that you can help. I bought a new laptop with Windows 11 and wanted to work with code::blocks (as continuing my work on my old laptop). I downloaded code::blocks with the 17.12mingw-setup.exe. Downloading seemed okay. But when I started code::blocks I got an error-message saying "no executable compiler is found". Why is this ? I hoped to get the GNU GCC Compiler with the download. So, what is the problem ? Does code::blocks not work with Windows 11 ? Have I forgotten to do something ? Should I use another compiler (by the way I am programming in C++) ?

I would forget 17.12 (and even 20.03) and use a nightly, it does not need installation.

Later, install whichever compiler you want (for example the MinGW-w64 suite) in C:\MinGW and configure C::B to use it if not detected.

More, look at and choose a 20.03 version with mingw included. This is not the last compiler version, but it's a good start.
Then you can also update C::B with the last nighly.
Windows 10 64 bits (22H2), svn C::B (last version or almost!), wxWidgets 3.2.1, Msys2 Compilers 12.2.0, 64 bits (seh, posix : gcc, g++ and gfortran in C:\msys64\mingw64) or 32 bits (dwarf2, posix  in C:\msys64\mingw32).

If you find the MinGW-w64 suite is hard to figure out what needs to be installed then try MSYS2 as it includes an installer and has allot more packages.

The MSYS2 web site is:
