A problem with the Code Blocks programme
I've recently started writing program on the Code Blocks compiler but there is one huge problem.When I am ready with the program and I choose "build and run", down on the white field is appearing the following message -> "d - Release" uses an invalid compiler. Probably the toolchain path within the compiler options is not setup correctly?! Skipping..."
Can somebody help me with an advise what to do ?Thanks.

Code::Blocks is not a compiler. It is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that can be used with a compiler of your choice. It sounds as if you have not configured it to use a compiler or the compiler you configured it to use is not installed, or you simply misconfigured it.
If you are using Windows then the simplest solution is to install Code::Blocks using the installer named codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe which includes a compiler. If you installed using codeblocks-10.05-setup.exe then you did not install a compiler tool-chain.
Code::Blocks on Linux will use GCC by default.
