    code::blocks disaster

    I have been trying to create a new wxWidgets project in Code::Blocks, all day with no success. When I get to the dialog window in the wizard that asks me to "Please select various configuration options," it doesn't matter what I choose, because when I click the 'Next' button I get the following messages:

    "A matching Debug configuration cannot be found in the wxWidgets directory you specified."
    and
    "A matching Release configuration cannot be found in the wxWidgets directory you specified."

    If I click 'Yes' and proceed anyway, of course any attempt to compile is rewarded with myriad compile error messages, in both Debug and Release modes.

    When I google for help with my problem, all I can find are links to forum pages where "experts" incessantly insist upon pointing the 'noobs' to the following page (instead of providing a real answer to the problem):

    WxWindowsQuickRef - CodeBlocks

    I have been through that page, following the instructions exactly (for wxpack binaries) over and over again until my brain is mush. It doesn't matter what I do, including manually adding directories where Code::Blocks seems to be expecting them. I'm not a noob to the conventions of computer file systems, so my confusion isn't due to my inability to follow what appear to be simple directions.

    Many searches of the Code Blocks and wxWidgets forums and wikis have provided me with no effective answers, just more references to links I've already visited multiple times.

    Someone here in the cprogramming.com forums HAS to know what I'm talking about. All I want to freaking do is learn how to create a simple GUI with wxWidgets. I'm getting so fed up with the unnecessary complexity of this process, that I'm seriously considering just going back to my old P.O.S. IDE, Visual C++ 4.0. At least I didn't have to kick my ass all the way to China just to get my foot in the door.

    Well well well...

    It seems I initially had the wrong wxpack installed.

    Carry on, coders, carry on.
