well, you don't need visual anything. You can accomplish what you need with any GUI toolkit. All you need is any C++ Compiler (Like those shipped with MS VC++, Code::Blocks, or DevC++), and the libraries for GUI deving. You can use the native Windows API, or you can choose to go more high-tech and use a cross-platform GUI toolkit like QT or WxWidgets.

If you want to use Code::Blocks with Wx, you can look at gabehabe's tutorials which are great regarding setting up and getting a functioning development environment and a nice sample app:

hi done everything you said but after i have selected the wxwidget location and choosen the GNU GCC compiler and i choose the 1st 3 options and create and use a precompiles header (PCH) i get i get this message

Quote

A matching Debug configuration cannot be found in wxWidgets directory you specified.
This means that Debug target of your project will not build.

Are you sure you want to contiue settings


Will this be a problem when i want to build and release my app i have followd the above instructions and the batch file etc..
