-====== Codelite for Windows ====== 
- 
-If you would like to use Codelite on Windows instead of Visual Studio, there'​s a few things required in order to use for developing Orx projects. 
- 
-These are: 
- 
-  - Codelite 9.2.0 minimum is required 
-  - You need to use a specific version and type of MinGW. 
- 
- 
-===== Getting Codelite ===== 
- 
-Codelite can be downloaded from: http://​downloads.codelite.org 
- 
-While there you can choose to donate to the project. 
- 
-The version required must be at least 9.2.0. Although versions like the 6.x series will compile Orx projects fine, you will have problems trying to attach a debugger. So get the specific version or higher. 
- 
-<WRAP center round important 90%> 
-When installing Codelite and running for the first time, a wizard will appear, giving the opportunity to download a MinGW compiler for you. These are TDM versions, don't download any of these. 
-</​WRAP>​ 
- 
- 
- 
-===== Which is the the right MinGW? ===== 
- 
-Codelite needs a compiler. It doesn'​t ship with one anymore. But you will need to pick the right MinGW. There are a few variations around: 
- 
-  - [[http://​mingw.org|MinGW]] - this is the original vanilla project. 
-  - [[http://​mingw-w64.org|Mingw-w64]] - this is a seperate project that provides a 64 bit version of MinGW. ​ 
-  - [[http://​tdm-gcc.tdragon.net|TDM-GCC]] - this is a variation of the original MinGW project and is traditionally packaged with older Codelite and Code::​Blocks IDEs 
- 
-Since Orx [[https://​bitbucket.org/​orx/​orx/​commits/​0e32f26ac0336b8b0a1f05583f9547de3ca87026|build commit 0e32f26]], TDM versions of MinGW can no longer be used. Nor are Mingw-w64 versions supported by Orx as yet. 
- 
-Therefore, the vanilla version of MinGW is the correct one to use from here on. 
- 
-At the time of writing, 5.3.0 is the version to use. But to check on the current version requirements,​ visit the [[https://​github.com/​orx/​orx#​supported-platforms|Orx supported platforms here]]. 
- 
- 
-===== Getting MinGW ===== 
- 
-Start by downloading the MinGW installer at: https://​sourceforge.net/​projects/​mingw/​files/​latest/​download 
- 
-Run the installer and go through the steps. These are outlined on this page: http://​orx-project.org/​wiki/​tutorials/​compiling_orx_with_mingw32_gmake 
- 
-Follow the steps titled **Getting mingw32** and **Updating the PATH environment variable**. 
- 
- 
-===== Telling Codelite about the new Compiler ===== 
- 
-  - In Codelite, go to Settings / Build Settings. 
-  - Click the orange "Scan for compilers"​ button. 
-  - The MinGW compiler you installed will become listed. 
-  - Double click it to set as the default compiler. 
-  - Ok to close the dialog. 
-  - Open your project, or Orx project. You can build your Workspace. You might be prompted to set a compiler for your project, if so, choose your compiler from the dropdown again. ​ 
- 
-You're all good to go.
