Ollydbg 04:55, 26 December 2008 (CET)This is a great tutorials about build Code::blocks on windows, But If I only want to compile some plug in, how can I do? Do I need to compile code::blocks binary first? And what is the update.bat file used for? Thanks.

mfhall 18 Jan 2010. I don't get it. This article is supposed to be about installing Code::Blocks from source - but it needs Code::Blocks to do the installation - even though it's not in the list of prerequisites. Have I gone mad, or is this some insane joke? Please, to save others from wasting the time I have (my fault, as I didn't read the article carefully enough before I started) rename this page to Updating, NOT Installing.

--Dasfoo 21:31, 27 October 2010 (UTC) This doesn't seem to be clearly said up front, but it appears to me that installing from source is a four step process. First you install the MinGW compiler, then the nightly Code Blocks build, then you download and build wxWidgets, then you download the source. Next you use codeblocs to build code blocks.
