This post picks up from here
Ok… So I’m picking my mom up for Christmas and it’s early in the morning and of course I’m on the computer..
But first I need to make some coffee.
Darn things is I copied my password down wrong and I can’t get in my blog…
So I storing this in google docs and I’ll copy it over later on.
Last time I was at this was Thanksgiving. http://www.metalshaperman.com/?p=104
Hopefully, this time I’ll keep better notes..
I fired up code::blocks and created a default wxformbuilder project to see if it would compile.
Close but no cookie..
So…. the compiler error looks like this:

I found some information at this link:http://www.wxwidgets.org/docs/faqmsw.htm#setuph
Why do I get errors about setup.h not being found?
When you build the wxWidgets library, setup.h is copied from include/wx/msw/setup.h to e.g. lib/vc_msw/mswd/wx/setup.h (the path depends on the configuration you’re building). So you need to add this include path if building using the static Debug library:
or if building the static Release library, lib/vc_lib/msw.
See also the wxWiki Contents for more information.
So…this led me to here:
Ok… I want to display the files that have setup.h here..
So… I need to go start->run and type in cmd..
Type type cd :\ to get to the root dir.
then I entered dir *setup.h/s >junk.txt

Ok… I think I need to build the library..
I went to this link: http://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Compiling_WxWidgets_With_MSYS-MinGW
and followed the instructions.
Ok… So I’m being asked which components to install.
I’m not sure this is correct but I selected:
MinGw base tools
I accepted the default C:\MinGw destination folder.
Also the MinGw Start folder.
The next thing in the instructions tells me to download MSYS.
It appears that I have 3 possibilities. I chose MSYS Base System, dated August 27,2008 which appears to be the most current.
Ok… I’m not sure what to do here…. I was sort of hoping for a .exe but it appears that everything is a tar…
Ok…. It seems that if you go to the bottom, you’ll find an .exe one less than the latest and greatest..
So….. I choose
Is clicked on a MSYS desktop icon and got what looks like a Linux termimal….
Next per the instructions I went to
change to the directory you installed the wx source to
../configure --disable-shared --enable-debug
…. This seems to be taking a while…. Probably time to go out and shovel some snow…
Back to shoveling.
The next instruction didn’t work for me:
test your build. If you see a windows application open up, your wxWidgets has built correctly ($ cd samples/minimal; make && minimal.exe).
make minimal and it tried to do the follow the following:
g++ minimal.cpp -o minimal
It squacked abouh the being able to find wx/wxprec.h among other things.
I searched for wxprech.h and found it in a couple of places… But unfortunately, my fun time is over ;(
I think something is buggered on my search paths… I need to look at this later
More on this later….
