Hi,
If you are motivated enough you can delete this gcc version, install 10 one, and recompile both wxWidgets and your app.

Thank you.

BTW, I still don't understand the reason, why you wanted to abandon MSVC. but that is a different story...

I like MSVC but I even like the Codeblocks IDE.

I would like to be familiar with codeblocks and wxwidgets to such an extent that I have another IDE option.

MSVC is great but we never know whether it can be discontinued due to its size or free cost.

If 8.1 works, i wouldn't touch it. But that's just me ;)
Use the source, Luke!

MSVC will never be discontinued.

The only thing C::B + wxWidgets has to offer is the RAD tool.

Thank you.

On you said it just the right way.

It actually fits in the right budget.

Is WxWidgets library and CB completely free for commercial use?

I mean totally free?

Hi,
Yes, they are. In fact some government agencies uses wxWidgets because it is free.

But MSVC Community Edition is also free of use.
I just not sure about "commercial products".

It is free, but unlike the no longer existing Express Edition, Community Edition license has its conditions, limitations apply to enterprise users in particular: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/lice ... mlt031819/

Hi,
As I said - I'm not sure about commercial usage of MSVC Community.

Thank you.

Hi,
Are you trying to see what compiler breaks C::B? 😀

Or u want to be involved with its development?

Thank you.

I just want to be good at its installation part.

I want to know what compiler works best with CB

Really enjoying the process.

I dont think I can do that kind of development work. Never worked on a library so big.

Just the Ins and Outs of Installation of CB with wxWidgets.

Hi,
But why?
You already found a working solution, so what is the purpose of those exercises?

Thank you

I was stuck for 2 days with gcc 9.2

I dont want to get stuck some time in the future.

I would like to know which compiler works and which one doesnt.

Why?
What is the purpose of updating compiler?

I would understand if you will need to update the library...

Unless you will need a newer C++ standard (which in fact is very very rare) I wouldn't bother with this.

Thank you.
