Error upon starting up Code::Blocks
« on: November 21, 2006, 01:04:00 am »
Hi, I just downloaded Code::Blocks and installed it. When I try to start the program I get the following error "Execution of command 'svn.exe ' failed (error 2: the system cannot find the file specified.)". Why would this be? Is there anything I can do?

Thanks for the help,
Nathan

I'm sorry, but what's a "nightly build"?

Thanks,
Nathan

well each night we build a new version of CB, so that code is always rather new :
 advantage :
    - bugs fixed
    - new features
 disadvantage :
    - some new bugs might be introduced


For the moment those nightly builds are very stable, so no need toworry. RC2 is very very old, and so much outdated compared to the nightlies.

Ok, I'm having a little problem. I downloaded and extracted the file from the link I posted above, but when I replaced the files in the code::blocks folder with the new files I get errors that certain .dlls are missing?

read the post on how to use nightlies carefully, you also need the wxwidgets dll and mingw dll ....
