I was using Dev-C++ 22.214.171.124 under Windows Xp-SP2 and I could at the time compile some console applications and also some basic DLLs that I would call from Excel (by using VBA).
By recommandations, I installed Codeblocks (latest version is 10.05) but after downloading it, I tried to compile the same codes that I would use with Dev-C++ 126.96.36.199, and the would compile. The problem is now that my console application crashes and my DLL under Excel is not working (it returns #VALUE).
I've checked the version of MinGW (I've downloaded the latest version from MinGW - Minimalist GNU for Windows - Browse Files at SourceForge.net, and told Codeblocks to use this version of MinGW (Settings->Compile Debuffer->Toolchain executables) and set up the directory of the compiler as 'c:\MinGW'.
But I cannot yet compile a decent console application or DLL... :-(
Any hint is appreciated.
