Installing the latest official version of Code::Blocks on Windows
- Download the Code::Blocks 17.12 installer. If you know you don't have MinGW installed, download the package which has MinGW bundled.
- Run the installer, it's a standard installer for Windows; just press Next after reading each screen.
- If you're planning installing a compiler after you've installed Code::Blocks, read the information provided in the installer.
- If you downloaded the installer which doesn't come with MinGW, you may have to configure the compiler manually (usually Code::Blocks' auto detects the compiler).
Since 16.01 is quite old, there is the possibility to use a nightly build from the Forum. This builds does not come bundled with a compiler!! You need to install a compiler by yourself. Before installing please read this
