Code Blocks question

P: 1
Ok I'm pretty new to programming but seem to be getting the hang of it fairly quickly. My one problem is that I downloaded CodeBlocks and am trying to get it to run with Borland 5.82. But every time I try to creat a build I get the message:

"new - Debug" uses an invalid compiler. Probably the toolchain path within the compiler options is not setup correctly?! Skipping...
Nothing to be done.

I checked everything out in the ToolChain and it seems to be fine. Any ideas?

One other question, is CB just a IDE or is it a compilier too. I see people talking about using the default GNU GCC compilier but I seem not to have it.

I'm running W7 if that means anything.

Any input would be great. Thank you.

Code::Blocks is an IDE, which you can configure to use a compiler - something it sounds like you haven't done. Why not try Visual Studio if you're on Windows?

If you don't have the compiler, you installed the wrong Code::Blocks release. This is the one you need:

(Either one of the links on that page will give you Code::Blocks PLUS the MinGW compiler.
