This article describes how to install a nightly build of Code::Blocks.

NOTE: If you have installed Code::Blocks RC1, RC1-1, or RC2; please either uninstall it or make sure you use a different directory. Do not install the nightly build on top of these release candidates.

Install steps

  1. Install MinGW and the GDB debugger.
  2. Download and install 7-Zip. You need it to extract the nightly build.
  3. Download the latest nightly build from the Nightly Builds forum.
  4. Download the according wxWidgets Unicode DLL for your nightly build (download link in forum).
  5. Download the mingw10.dll for Code::Blocks mingwm10.7z (also mentioned at the nightly build).
    • This step is optional if the bin directory of MinGW is in your PATH variable or if you copy mingw10.dll from …\"MinGW"\bin directory to your unzip-directory of Code::Blocks an wxWidgets DLL.
  6. Unzip Code::Blocks and the wxWidgets DLL to the same directory.
  7. Start Code::Blocks and configure GNU GCC compiler.
