Hi,
but code completion still not work.
Since (IIRC) CodeLite 13 the preferred method of code completion is
Language Server. Maybe that wasn't/isn't active in your configuration: check 'Plugins > Manage Plugins: LanguageServerPlugin'.

IIUC installing your own clang shouldn't have made any difference to whether that works or not; and using clang to compile your project certainly wouldn't have.
The only downside with Clang is the compiled binary when run via CodeLite doesn't pause for me to see the output like the GCC one, it closed almost immediately.
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by that, but: look in Project Settings: General > Execution. Is the 'Pause when execution ends' box ticked?

Regards,

David

Hard to say why it doesn't work for you and it does for us :-/

and eranif has very little time at present, while can't help: I don't use Windows, and know/care little about Code-completion. Sorry.
It seemed I'm really invisible :(
Maybe your code-completion is also transparent ;) .
