Title: Program won't run
Post by: Bit2_Gosu on October 12, 2009, 07:02:52 pm

I've just installed CodeBlocks and am desperately trying to get the default main.c "hello world" file running.
I built a Console Project using GCC on Vista and pressed Build and Run but nothing shows in the build log - no console window shows up either. As I was wondering whether GCC actually exists on Windows I tried the same thing using Cygwin - with the same result.

Anybody a clue?

Step 1. Install a compiler that works with Vista the newest MinGW GCC 3.4.5 works with Vista.
(The MinGW GCC bundled with the Code::Blocks IDE 8.02 does NOT work with Vista.)
Step 2. Learn the Basics of programing on an beginner site. THIS IS NOT A beginner site.

After knowing the basics of C/C++ Programming

Turn ON "full compiler Logging" to help you learn how compiler works.

Read the FAQ and Manual and search the sites before asking questions
