Anyway, it's really simple but I don't have time to give you step-by-step instructions, youtube "SFML coder" and look through his videos on his profile, there should be one about setting up code blocks/mingw.
Also about that first error, place sfml-system.dll in the same folder as main.cpp
Yeah, that's something I've run in to myself, really strange, I don't know why it suddenly started happening, maybe because I didn't install MinGW with code::blocks this time and instead downloaded it seperately, even in Release I have this problem.
anyway, its in your C:/Program Files(x86)/Codeblocks/MinGW/ folder, search for it there, and you will also need c++std-6 or something.
Oh, and you put it in the same folder as your programs .exe, but if you compile your program and run it from code blocks you shouldn't need it.
wait this windows 7 doesnt have program files 86 it has program data instead !?
is there another way to do it? could i reiinstall the right mingw without having to do all the other settings? urgh i see that a lot of people have these problems
My bad, windows 7 32-bit only has normal program files, I was talking about W7 64-bit, it should be in C:/Program Files/Codeblocks/MinGW/, use the search bar to find it, IIRC it's in the bin folder but I could be wrong.
nope it don't & my search found nuffink!
i found a libgcc_s_sjlj-1.dll, so i guess i was looking in the right place, would it work if i deleted everything, downloaded codeblocks without mongw downloaded the official mingw and then do all the copying and pasting of folders
all over again? is there an easier way out? like suicide?
but to clarify i wanted to copy and paste libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll and c++std-6 into where i save my programs?
i hope i dont have to do that each time.
i guess programmers are supposed to know these things before they learn to use them else they would make it more user freindly...or maybe it seperates the wheat from the chaff...or is the whole thing just really clunky, i have seen how many people struggle
