    Unhappy "Hello World"

    So I got the Codeblocks 10.05 downloaded. I am trying to get myself associated with programming before going to school for it.
    ( I also have SAMS Teach Yourself C++ book)

    Anyway, I am trying to run the very basic beginner "program" with Codeblocks while following the Codeblocks directions word for word. Yet every time I try to open a new project with wxWidgets, it gets to the "PLEASE select the location of wxWidgets on your computer" section it won't work. It says this is the top level folder where wxWidgets was unpacked. I cannot for the LIFE of me get passed this section to start a new project. Does this make sense to anyone? Sorry if it doesn't.

    Wait, this beginner program requires you to have wxWidgets installed, beyond what is necessary to get CodeBlocks to run? If so, move to another beginner program. Messing around with wxWidgets can come later.

    the instructions for the hello world program ran through wxwidgets rather than console application. Any ideas for a better beginner program? I worked visual basic a very long time ago but with the rate things evolve im sure im out of date on it.

    Yes. Borrow/buy Accelerated C++ from your local library/bookstore.

    Thank you very much. I hope I can get it VIA online because I will not be in the US for another six months and trying to mail things to Iraq is very tough as of late. Thanks again for the input I will look into it as soon as I can.
