    need help, using/setting up codeblocks

    Hey, I'm very new to programing and such and starting on C++ due to a friends advice. Anyway, I just started the tutorial on it and downloaded codeblocks. After i downloaded it and tried to test what was already in there all it said was
    "test - debug" uses an invlaid complier. skipping...
    nothing to be done.
    I searched over the net and tried other solutions but none have worked. If anyone could help me with this i would appreciate it. Also i applogize if this post is in the wrong section, I looked through the rest and this seemed to be the best fit. Thanks.

    Did you download and install the version with a compiler (MinGW GCC)?

    You can install GCC separately yourself, but it's probably easier to just download the version that comes with it.

    yep , the problem is that he didn't install any compiler before! or lets say doesn't have any compilers installed! or at least didn't configure codeBlocks to use the installed compiler(s) .

    ok to fix your problem the fastest way download

    codeblocks-8.02mingw-setup.exe 28 Feb 2008 19.3 MB Sourceforge or BerliOS

    and install it , ( better uninstall the previous installment first)

    What I recomend is following Masterx's advice, but make sure when you go into code::blocks, click settings, Toolchain executables, then click the Auto-Detect button, and then ok. After that, code::blocks should work fine.
