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 ontop of these release candidates.

Install steps

  1. Install MinGW and the GDB debugger.
MinGW 5.02 allows to choose the SF mirror while 5.03 does not.
Either installer allows to downloads/installs "previous", "current" and "candidate" mingw packages.
  1. Download and install 7-Zip. You need it to extract the nightly build.
  2. Download the latest nightly build from the Nightly Builds forum.
  3. Download the wxWidgets Unicode DLL for Code::Blocks [1].
  4. Unzip Code::Blocks and the wxWidgets DLL to the same directory.
  5. Start Code::Blocks and configure GNU GCC compiler.
