Suddenly getting errors when compiling wxWidget Project?

Post by dominover » Mon Dec 03, 2012 1:35 pm

I'm not sure what has caused this.. Thought someone might recognize the problem.

I have been successfully compiling wxWidgets projects for a couple of months now but suddenly I'm getting a heap of errors when compiling. Build Log below

Don't know what I could have done. Anybody recognize this problem? It's mentioning a number of files not declared in this scope but I can't understand why this has suddenly happened.

I'm using Windows XP, Code::Blocks with a Mingw compiler.

Code: Select all

what is the first error? I guess the log misses something.
First guess is to check include paths

OK everybody.. I hope you all didn't sit up too late trying to solve this for me.

I have a solution.

I at some stage tampered with the compiler settings and ticked an extra field which caused these errors. I just cleared them all and ticked the first option 'produce debugging symbols -g' and it worked. Seems it was a compiler problem, somehow affecting the way wxwidgets compiles.

Brilliant work dominover. Case solved.

Cheers

Remove: -std=c++0x from GCC compiler
