MingW and MSYS
« on: January 24, 2007, 06:02:10 pm »
I'm very beginer CB user (sorry for ma english),

I was instaled CB 'Nigthly builds', I was set PATH for dll's,
next, I was downloaded MSYS (v. Snapshot, Apr 30, 2004).
So, it's problem, folder '...\msys\1.0\mingw' is empty!, I wanted to install MinGW compiler fo CB, but what?!

What am I to do? What am I to download?
because CB gets me build message: '...uses an invalid compiler [YOUR ANSWER IS ALREADY THERE. SEARCH THE FORUMS!]. Skipping...'

Please, help me!

Did you download minGW? You don't need MSys for Code::Blocks

See wiki for more info

If you use the MinGW Installer 5.1.3 I suggest "current" mingw package as the easiest for a beginner.
The manual installation is best in order to control what is installed, but I use the MinGW Installer myself in order to test how it works. Note, if you use "candidate" mingw package you get an make version 3.81 that has issues and can NOT be used to make wxWidgets (or at least I can NOT use it to make wxWidgets.)
