Hello,
I just installed CodeLite on Windows and I tried to run the simple program "Hello World".
In the output it didn't print the message. Should I do something before?

Hi,
1. Do you have gcc/g++ or any other compiler installed? - note that CodeLite does not come with bundle compiler, you need to install it separately.

2. Can u please post here the output from the following tabs (from the bottom pane 'Output View'):
'Output'
'Build'
'Trace'

I've got Dev-C++ and Visual Studio.

The output from the tabs are as following:

Running program: le_exec.exe ./helloworld

'Build': -s Silent, does not print commands before doing them
-? or -h Prints this message
Options marked with '+' are on by default. To turn off a default
option follow it by a '-', for example: -a-

These are not compilers, but IDEs.

Which compiler do you use?

If you dont mind using g++ - download and install it from here:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/wxpack ... e?download

Once installation is complete, go to menu: 'Settings -> Environment Variables...'

Create new entry:

Name: PATH
Value: $(PATH);<path/to/mingw4/bin>

Click OK and close this dialog.

- right click on the project settings, and select 'g++' and the compiler.

Build it again.

I did what you said and it worked now.
I had also to change the Build Settings because I have Borland C++ installed.

Thanks a lot!

Hi there eranif, I have similar problem, so I guess I just post it here (hopefully you read this, and this is Ok) ;) .
I Have this problem

Code: Select all

Building: "mingw32-make.exe"  -j 1 -f "TestCodeLite_wsp.mk" type=Debug
----------Building project:[ stuff - Debug ]----------
g++: installation problem, cannot exec `cc1plus': No such file or directory
mingw32-make.exe[1]: *** [Debug/main.o.d] Error 1
mingw32-make.exe: *** [All] Error 2
----------Build Ended----------
and sometimes, if CodeLite manage to find the cc1plus.exe it failed locating crtbegin.o.

I have try reintalling both CodeLite and MingW (as you suggest from wxPack website), setting the setting you showed here and it still occured.
I manage to get it working tho, once, with the previous dev revision, but after updating to the latest dev revision, the problem occured again.
Please help. I really like CodeLite, since it's kinda like CodeBlocks the lightweight version :mrgreen:

it appears to be a MinGW problem on Vista (which I am guessing that you are using)

Since you are familiar with CodeBlocks, I will give you the answer already been answered there:

Wow weird, I'm using XP, anyway here is my installation details:

[*]Windows XP SP3 (probably why it doesn't work ?)
[*]MinGW_v4.2.1-dw2.3.exe
[*]CodeLite-1.0.2013.exe

I tried to redirect CodeLite to use the MingW that come with CodeBlocks, and it worked, I gues you are right, it's MingW installation problem, it still weird tho, since I'm in XP, maybe the MingW installer not compatible :?: :roll:

I personally still using mingw 3.4.5 on XP SP3 and all is great...
Maybe I should contact the wxPack maintainer and report him about this bug.

Anyways, glad to hear that all is working now, and hope you like what you see ;)

Yup I like what I see, everything is 'snappy', although some file association won't hurt :mrgreen:
