mingw-32, where are you?
Hey friends, I'm super new at all this, so forgive me what is likely a very novice question.
I've installed code::blocks 8.02 but when I try and build, it returns a "uses an invalid compiler. Skipping..." status.
I figured this was because the compiler and directory settings weren't set properly. In Settings>Compiler and Debugger>Toolchain Executables it was set to a directory on the C drive I don't have. When I searched for where those files were (files like mingw32-gcc.exe, gdb.exe, windres.exe) I couldn't find them anywhere.
To what subset of programs is it referring to, and where can I find them?
Thanks so much for all of your help!
Did you download codeblocks with mingw? or just the IDE?
On mine the MinGW directory is in C:/Program Files/codeblocks/MinGW
It must have just been the IDE, because in my C:\Program Files\Codeblocks I only have one directory, \share.
You can install MinGW yourself, or just get the Code::Blocks package that includes MinGW.
Got it figured out. Thanks for the help guys! If anyone in the future has this issue, this site is extremely helpful:
Browse MinGW - Minimalist GNU for Windows Files on SourceForge.net
Wait.. So what you're saying is that the site that was set up by mingw's makers for this exact purpose was indeed good for this purpose?
