    You need to download the larger package (the one with mingw in the name).
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    He means download the Code::Blocks binary installer with "mingw" in the filename:
