Lost my CodeLite Environment Variables due to Power Drop

Postby ColleenKobe » Tue Aug 22, 2017 11:12 pm

The power failed on my computer while I was debugging in CodeLite. When the power came back on, my Environment Variables were gone, and I get errors when I compile.

It's been a long time since I've messed with the CodeLite Environment Variables. I couldn't remember what they were.

I tried to recover them by opening different Codelite workspaces, thinking I'd cut-and-paste the Environment Variables in the other workspaces into my current project. No dice. The Environment Variables in them ALL are blank. Gone!

Then I tried to recover the Environment Variables by searching for the string "WXWIN:=C:\wxWidgets". I got hits in some *.mk files. I tried copying the following promising-looking statements into my CodeLite Environment Variables window:

Code: Select all
CodeLiteDir=C:\CodeLite
WXCFG=gcc_lib\mswud
WXWIN=C:\wxWidgets

But this is what I got when I tried to compile:

Failed Build--missing environment variables.jpg
The environment variables vanish.
Failed Build--missing environment variables.jpg (340.31 KiB) Viewed 439 times


And THEN, when I went to check the Environment Variables, they were gone! They hadn't been saved!

:-(

I don't know what to do. How do I recover and consistently save my Environment Variables? I do have some previous versions of the make files and other files in this workspace. Would one of those help?

Do you have the folder:

C:\wxWidgets\lib\gcc_lib\mswud or C:\wxWidgets\lib\gcc_lib\mswu ?

This is where wx-config will search for the installation.

Actually, yes, both
C:\wxWidgets\lib\gcc_lib\mswu
and
C:\wxWidgets\lib\gcc_lib\mswud
are there.

Check if you have envioronment variables WXWIN and WXCFG defined else where in the project.
Try: Workspace Settings->Environment variables and also, Project settings->Environment

I just brought up my project in CodeLite, version 10.0.6.

I have one workspace and two projects.

Under Project, Settings, Environment, Additional environment variables, the big box is empty for BOTH projects.

Under Settings, Environment Variables, the default environment set is an empty black box with a cursor blinking in it.

I had to get started working, so I did the only two things I could think of to do:

1) I reinstalled CodeLite; and
2) For each project: I clicked the project name, Settings, Environment, and copied the following three settings in the big box:
CodeLiteDir=C:\CodeLite
WXCFG=gcc_lib\mswud
WXWIN=C:\wxWidgets

Then I Cleaned Workspace and Rebuilt Workspace.
I got a linker error saying that it didn't have a recipe to build one of my *.cpp files. So I removed the file from the build, and then added it back in.

I Cleaned Workspace and Rebuilt Workspace again.
Now CodeLite compiles and gives me all the error messages I was getting when the power crash happened. So I'm good. :-)

Thanks for your help, eranif!
