    ERROR in Tutorial

    I experienced an error in the tutorial at:

    Cprogramming.com Tutorial: Setting up Code::Blocks and MINGW, A Free C and C++ Compiler, on Windows


    Specifically Step 3 did not happen.

    As such I got an "invalid compiler" error when trying to build example.


    It was corrected by setting the "toolchain" setting, but only after guidance on the C::B forums.


    Is my system (XP C::B 8.02) somehow anomalous?

    Yes, in that I've set up C::B on several different machines and always had that window come up the first time it ran. I'm not sure what happened that you did not get that window.

    I have no problem when I install the C::B. My system is Win 7.
