This error occurs because you have remaining plugins from RC2 which are not compatible with the current codeblocks.dll.

Go to the plugins folder and look at file creation dates, delete all "old" ones.

EDIT:
Sorry, I did not answer your question "How i am suppoesed to install nightly?" at all...

The correct way to install it is to
- either unpack the archive to a new folder and install MinGW separately
- or unpack to the RC2 folder (if you want to keep the compiler) after deleting the application, the dll, and the shared folder

There is enough of a difference between RC2 and the nightly builds that it would probably be better to uninstall RC2 and delete everything from the directory you installed to before extracting the nightly build. To run a nightly build, you need to have MinGW or the compiler of your choice installed (if not MinGW, then make sure you get mingwm10.dll), and you need the nightly build .7z as well as the wxWidgets Unicode DLL (links to both are in each nightly build announcement). Just extract them both to the same directory.

Not strictly necessary. Although recommended, you do not absolutely need this. All that dll does is create RPTs on an application crash, and there should be no other side effect if you don't have it.

If you want to do a 100% clean install as TDragon proposed, you will find all you need to know about how to install MinGW here: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=MinGW_installation

Thomas, mingwm10.dll is needed. It is needed by any mingw-application that uses threads.
You probably confused it with exchndl.dll which is for backtraces :)
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Umm DON'T uncompress a nightly over RC2.  :lol: Uncompress to a different folder, also I would uninstall RC2.

I would just like to provide "The Rest of the Story"...

The wiki steps are clear and easy for Mingw...

Next, take the Nightly Build and extract it to a new directory (C:/CodeBlocks)
then copy the mingwm10.dll from C:/Mingw/ to C:/CodeBlocks
then download and put wxmsw26u_gcc_cb.dll in C:/CodeBlocks
(See link on nightly build page)

Double click codeblocks.exe and it will set up the environment.
You will need to create any short cuts or Quick Start icons.
(Send to  desktop and drop an drag to Quick Start...)
