Disable PCH for MinGW in:
databaselayer
wxshapeframework decided to try to use PCH in cmake build
wxsqlite3

If any of those should have PCH please inform me.
Edit: It looks like I should try to create an PCH for wxshapeframework using "wx_pch.h" in wxshapeframework folder.

I now have these PCH files created by cmake:
codelite_pch.h.gch
libplugin_pch.h.gch
libcodelite_pch.h.gch
wxshapeframework/src/wx_pch.h.gch
precompiled_header_release.h.gch
wxcrafter_pch_release.h.gch

Status update: Build made it to 93 percent and stopped on windres option error caused by add_definitions(-Winvalid-pch)
Changing to add_compile_options(-Winvalid-pch) to see if the error is fixed.

Note to self: Need to test debug build and verify cmake clean command deletes the gch file.

I have decided to close https://github.com/eranif/codelite/pull/2783 and rewrite it.

Edit: I have decided I need to rewrite "FindSqlite3.cmake" before doing a replacement for the closed PR.

Posted new PR https://github.com/eranif/codelite/pull/2789 that should allow these directions to be used.

The 64 bit version of CodeLite runs and exists with no problem.
The 32 bit version crashes before it shows the IDE. The problem seems to be related to calling MSWSetWindowDarkTheme from DoSysColoursChanged
Edit: The 32 bit crash happen with both wxWidgets 3.0 and 3.1.
Edit2: Building an wxWidgets 3.1 with max debug enabled in hope that I will see something more.

I wouldn't invest too much in 32 bit CodeLite.
I don't think its worth it, we only build it for Windows and I do plan on dropping it for the next version (16)

Make sure you have read the HOW TO POST thread

The current directions I am using; they should work for 64 bit builds. I had to commented out the code that did not work under 32 bit in my Git repo testing branch.
https://github.com/stahta01/codelite/tree/testing

Edit: Added step to create codelite.bat; it seems to almost work okay now. The problems I am having are normal CodeLite user issues that an expert user should know how to fix. Note: I am not expert user; just a beginning user.

Edited step to create codelite.bat.
