There will be one shortly (it's mentioned here).

Just wait a few days :wink:

Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Wait a couple of days, until the next version is released.
Full, native, support is included for both MSVC Free Toolkit 2003 *and* Borland C++ Compiler 5.5

:) :) :)

Switched compiler!
« Reply #5 on: January 09, 2005, 01:33:02 am »
After some fiddling I found a way to do this. Create a project. Right click on the tree item with the "Code::Blocks" icon [eg. "Console application"], select "Build Options" in the menu. Here you can switch to the VC compiler.

It would be nice if I could make the VC compiler the default for all projects, not just the current one.

Can't wait to get started with Code::Blocks, looks absolutely kickass! :) Thanks, all Code::Blocks devs.

***EDIT***

To successfully compile the default "Hello World" main.cpp file, I found it necessary to do the following:

1. Main menu: Settings > Plugins > Compiler
2. Go to the "Programs" tab.
3. Delete the resource compiler entry, because there isn't one. :? [I'm sure this must be wrong, but... well... I just don't have rc.exe with cl.exe and link.exe. I must get a resource compiler, to add icons and stuff to my DLLs.]
4. Replace "mingw32-make.exe" with the full path to the make exe.

That's it, then I hit compile and it worked like a charm. :)

rc.exe is part of the MS Platform SDK. The VC Free Toolkit is, on its own, good only for console apps. For win32 apps you will need the platform SDK anyway.

Missing files

As it happens I have Visual Studio 6 installed [that's the main reason I tried Code::Blocks actually :x ], so I guess I can grab rc.exe out of that. I also notice the Free Toolkit has no windows.h, which I can also swipe from my VS6 install.

Mind you... probably better to get the Platform SDK than just rip files at random, eh? More chance of getting an up to date file if it's a recent download than a file from a 5-year-old CD.

Code::Blocks is in the top 500 active projects on Sourceforge, btw. \o/

*** EDIT ***

Strewth. After some searching and switching of browsers, I finally found out the Platform SDK to use for Windows 2000: it's the Windows Server 2003 SDK. :evil:

Hope this helps anyone dev'ing on Win2k...

I have another question related to the Platform SDK : it includes debugging tools like a symbolic debugger.
Is there a way to use it from Code::Blocks ?
Thanks

Not yet, but there are plans. In the meantime you should use windbg (it's in the platform sdk).

Ok, I'll go with it at the moment.
Another point that I don't have time to check yet : does anyone try to build a WTL program with code::blocks, VC Toolkit 2003 and Platform SDK installed ? WTL is a tremendous GUI toolkit that I would really like to use with Code::Blocks.

Thanks
Thomas.

I want to know it too. WTL is nice to develop SDK program.
