Code::Blocks installation procedure under Windows

The first step is to download the Code::Blocks setup file from here.

After you download the setup file you selected, launch it to start the setup process. The setup program is a standard installer for Windows. Just press "Next" after reading each screen. You will be given the chance to read the program license, enter the installation directory and select which plugins you want installed. A help text on installing a compiler will also appear. Read it!

Note: Most other IDEs, behave strangely when installed in a directory whose path contains spaces. Code::Blocks IDE does not suffer from this problem! Feel free to install it in whichever path you like!

Note 2: If you 'll be using MinGW GCC with Code::Blocks, two MinGW programs do have problems with spaces in filenames: windres.exe (resource compiler) and gdb.exe (GNU debugger). If you plan on using any of these two programs, avoid placing your projects in paths containing spaces.
