How to Install Code Blocks for C++ on Windows?
In this article, we will look into the process of installing code blocks for C++ on windows.
Installation Code Blocks for C++ on Windows:
Follow the below steps to install Code Blocks for C++ on windows:
Step 1: Open Your Web Browser
Step 2: Go to the Search Panel and Search for “Code Blocks”
Step 3: Click on the First Result shown on the Search Engine or click on this link.

Step 6: As per this Date, the Latest Version of Code Blocks is 20.03. Now here you’ll find several download options
- codeblocks-20.03-setup.exe : It is a standard executable file that is easier to install.
- codeblocks-20.03-nosetup.zip : It is a zip file which you do not have to install , you can just unzip and run it.
I’ll suggest you download the file with MinGW written on it (“codeblocks-20.03mingw-setup.exe”) as MinGW is a Compiler that is needed to run the Program. If you download the normal setup file then you have to download The compiler separately.
Step 7: Click on Sourceforge.net under the Download Section of your desired file.
Step 8: then Download should begin within some seconds.
Step 9: When the download is completed, Open Your Code Blocks Setup File.

Step 12: Click On Next ( you need to have at least 600 MB free storage on your drive for the installation).
Step 13: Select your Destination and Click on Install
Step 14: Once Installation gets completed, click on Next and then Click on Finish
