Shared build

Post by mattleib » Sat Feb 24, 2007 8:47 pm

I am using wxMSW-2.8.0, MinGW C++ Toolbox, and Code::Blocks svn build rev 3455 Unicode.
I compiled wxWidgets as a release, non shared (dll), unicode. And also as a release, shared (dll), unicode.
When I compiled the Code::Blocks wxWidgets Project wizard the shared compilation worked fine. But, when I used the non shared compilation it compiled but couldn't link. I downloaded a movie on the setting up Code::Blocks at but it compiled fine on the movie even when I set up Code::Blocks the same.

Can you help me?

The older wizard has been replaced with a newer and better wizard in revision 3553 which has better support for different build configurations of wx lib.

Download a latest nightly and you'll not face the problem. Download it from-
Also post your feedback about the wizard in the following thread.
Keep an eye on the thread. The wizard is under constant development and newer features will be added soon. We're looking forward for your feedback.
