git is not mandatory : I also provide a sources archive.

I wrote a small article on how to install these libs : https://wxstuff.xaviou.fr/article/built ... stall.html
Just follow it and don't hesitate to ask if it needs more precise informations.

And if the choice you have using this link, you can have a look here : you will be able to download differents configurations that can be installed in one time.

Posibly i am just to stupied, but i have extracted the content of the lib folder of "wxWidgets-3.0.4-gcc510TDM-x64-32bits-Static-Monolibs.7z" to the lib folder of "wxWidgets-3.0.4". However when I try to start a wxwidgets project in CodeBlocks I am geting an error mesage:

I agree it's not very clear in the installation article.
If you want to use the downloaded libs "as is", you must specify the "Configuration" field of C::B project wizard.

It must contain "32" or "64" for 32 or 64 bits multi-libs and "32_Mono" or "64_Mono" for monolithics libs.

If you want to get rid of that, just rename the lib folder after extraction (it must be something like "WX_INSTALL_DIR\lib\gcc_lib\" or "WX_INSTALL_DIR\lib\gcc_dll").

Hope it'll help. : if not, don't hesitate to re-ask...

Thanks for the answer, at the end I had to build everithing myself, which took me at least an hour again. I had already tried to rename it to "WX_INSTALL_DIR\lib\gcc_lib\", but didn´t help. Posibly the gcc version wasn´t exactly the same, have to check that.
