Launch Code::Blocks in Windows XP
« on: October 26, 2022, 10:50:15 am »
CodeBlocks version: 20.3

I have installed, but on the launch have got an error about procedure kernel32.ReleaseSRWLockExclusive (not found) in DLL api-ms-win-core-synch-l1-1-0.dll

I found api-ms-win-core-synch-l1-1-0.dll in system (12 kb size) and system32 (21 kb) folders, but did not find in CodeBlocks folder. I suppose that CodeBlocks tries to look for in wrong folder or use wrong file.

Excuse me, I do not understand all, because my English is no native. Links for dwnloading zips are broken there.

ReleaseSRWLockExclusive is function from kernel32.dll, so I don't understanda why it
 CodeBlocks try tio find it in other dll.

Download this file -> https://github.com/jrfonseca/drmingw/releases/download/0.8.2/drmingw-0.8.2-win32.7z
Copy the files in the bin folder to the folder where codeblocks.exe resides.

dbghelp.dll
exchndl.dll
mgwhelp.dll
symsrv.dll
symsrv.yes

Confirm. I have got "Compilers auto-detection" window.
Thank you.
