Problems getting started, "SDL2/SDL.h: No such file or directory"

02 December 2013 - 07:25 AM

Hi Im relativly new to C++, was going to moving on to SDL My goal was to create a simple 2D game having a movable characters and some obstacles drawn on the screen and move on from there.


I followed the guide under tutorials on SDLs page on how to setup on Code::Blocks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWGtuc5uqF4 downloading all the files and following the steps...


I have put theese lines under Search directories:












and put the lines -lmingw32 -lSDL2main -lSDL2 -lSDL2_image -lSDL2_mixer under Linker settings > Other linker options. As I understand this is for 32 bit, I would prefer the 64 hower dont know how to install it.



I downloaded the project in that tutorial also (SDL001), build and run does work. But however as soon as I edit something like just adding a comment. It gives an error and stop working! :


"SDL2/SDL.h: No such file or directory"


I downloaded some other tutorials from the same guy, with various results. I been trying to search the web on how to solve this problem without any results. Someone have any idea on what Im missing?



/Thank you
