Build error with wxWidget in windows XP

Post by cls555 » Sun Jun 01, 2008 3:46 pm

I have created an helloworld app.
error message:

uilding: "mingw32-make.exe" -j 1 -f "Codelite_wsp.mk" type=Debug

Please use the --wxcfg flag (as in wx-config --wxcfg=gcc_dll\mswud)
or set the environment variable WXCFG (as in WXCFG=gcc_dll\mswud)
to specify which configuration exactly you want to use.

Hi,

I see here several errors;
1. g++ is using VC flags, is that intended?, if not, then change the compiler to be "gnu g++" (Right click on your project and select "settings..."), change the compiler to be "gnu g++"

2. CodeLite is using wx-config tool to get the correct path to your wxWidgets installation. Please set these two environment variables (right click on "My Computer" -> Properties -> Advanced Tab -> Environment Variables:
WXCFG=gcc_dll\mswu
WXWIN=C:\path\to\your\wx\installation (e.g. WXWIN=C:\wxWidgets-2.8.7)

Note that after settings these environment variables, you will need to restart CodeLite.

Quick question:
How did you create this project? did u use the 'New wxWidgets project' button from the toolbar?

Hi Eran!
I have compiled wxWidget with VC,so the compiler setting should be VC. I changed it to VC now and got this error message:

Code: Select all

Building: "mingw32-make.exe"  -j 1 -f "Codelite_wsp.mk" type=Debug

Hi,

I fail to see compiler error here...

Two more tests:

- When you open DOS shell (Start -> Run -> cmd.exe), and you type cl.exe, what is the output u get?
- can you try and run the build command from the command line? (start -> run -> cmd.exe) and then type:

Code: Select all

mingw32-make.exe  -f Codelite_wsp.mk
(cd to the workspace path, where Codeilte_wsp.mk exists)

Hi,
Oh!I see.Every time when I launch VC,"vsvars32.bat" run automaticly.CodeLite do not run "vsvars32.bat",so the problem happens.
Do I have an alternative choice that do not run it manually and also do not compile it in the cmd way ?

Currently, codelite does not offer anyway of running environment script prior its launch. However, a simple one do exist:

open cmd.exe shell
run:

Code: Select all

vsvars32.bat
launch CodeLIte by typing:

Code: Select all

CodeLite.exe
CodeLite should now be able to compile your code properly

Dear Eran,
Many thanks for this amazing IDE (both in features and lightweight), You should have got used to receive thanks ;) .
I have a problem with compiling wxWidgets application in Windows XP.
It's strange 'cos when I had installed CL (package with MinGW and wxWidgets 2.8.7), it worked. Now, when I try to compile the project (created from New wxWidgets Project creator button), I get following output:

Code: Select all

It seems very bizarre because wxWidgets distrib. should be OK, MinGW also, environment variables are set correctly (WXWIN=E:\Prog\wxWidgets287, WXCFG=gcc_dll\mswu). What is more, when I type in console the first compiler call:

Code: Select all

g++ -c  "E:/Prog/CodeLite/Projects/wspTestWX/wxtestapp_app.cpp" -g -mthreads -DHAVE_W32API_H -D__WXMSW__ -D__WXDEBUG__ -D_UNICODE -IE:\Prog\wxWidgets287\lib\gcc_dll\mswud -IE:\Prog\wxWidgets287\include -DWXUSINGDLL -Wno-ctor-dtor-privacy -pipe -fmessage-length=0    -D__WX__  -o ./Debug/wxtestapp_app.o 
it makes an object file without errors. But from the CodeLite, it sees no header (despite -IE:\Prog\wxWidgets287\include argument).
Could You help me? Thanks in advance,
PAVLVS

Two things to check:
1) Is 'E:\Prog\wxWidgets287\include\' the correct path of your WX installation?
2) Are you using MSYS? if you do set the environment variable SHELL (from the menu: settings -> environment variables...) to cmd.exe as described in this post:
http://codelite.org/forum/viewtopic.php ... HELL#p1080

Yes, it is.

I don't know, it depends on the MinGW distribution bundled to CodeLite.

ACTUALIZED:
I've done what You'd suggested (variable SHELL=cmd.exe) and now it works!
Thank You, Eran!
