Missing DLL from codeblocks/minGW zip
« on: November 18, 2012, 01:31:47 am »
I have downloaded the codeblocks zip from this site and set it and Git and such up, downloaded the maps using the python script, and compiled the code successfully with codeblocks.  It seems to work OK right up until I enter a mission.  Then I get an error message about the DLL libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll being missing.  I searched the code files, the built files and the installed version for this dll, but it does not seem to be anywhere.  Apparently it is missing from the MinGW/bin directory in the codeblocks zip.  I found a copy in a fresh install of MinGW and copied that into the MinGW\bin directory that I use with Codeblocks and rebuilt.  That seemed to fix the problem.  I'm not sure if using the DLL from a different version of MinGW would cause other unforseen problems. 

Maybe the dll could be added to the zip so others don't run into the same issue.
