Getting CodeBlocks to Work – An Update

Quite a while ago, at least in computer technology terms, I wrote the Getting CodeBlocks to Work post to make it easier for readers to obtain a good copy of CodeBlocks to use with C++ All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies. It seems that some of the information I provided at that time has become outdated.

When you go to the original automated installer site, you now see a number of links, including one listed as Download mingw-get-inst-20111118.exe (591.9 kb ).

Clicking the new link will automatically start a download of the latest automated installer. When the download is complete, you can install your copy of CodeBlocks.

If anyone encounters a problem with these latest downloads, please let me know at I want to be certain that you have a great learning experience when working with my books.
