I've been trying to use Allegro 4.2.2 in my newly nightly build of Code::Blocks, and I have been unsuccessful at it. What I did is I got the binary files from http://www.allegro.cc Then I copied the respected lib, bin, and include folders in the New MinGW folder I have at c:\MinGW folder, and when I went to see if I had installed Allegro correctly I opened up an old Allegro project I use to run with in Dev C++ and edited some text, and F9 = Build and Run, and it worked just fine, but then anytime I try to save a project myself, or start from scratch I keep getting undefined reference checks. So, I said hey, maybe that is the compiler not being able to find my library for allegro, so how bout I tell it to add the libraries from the MinGW folder and yup I can compile it, but I can't build the project and run it. So there is no way for me to run my program to see if it is working the way I wish for it to work. Here is the error that I am getting when I try to build my project
Checking for existence: C:\Documents and Settings\Numb3rz\My Documents\Programming\My C++ Programs\Allegro Stuff\Allegro_00\Allegro_00\bin\Debug\Allegro_00.exe
Executing: "C:\Program Files\Nightly Code Blocks/cb_console_runner.exe" "C:\Documents and Settings\Numb3rz\My Documents\Programming\My C++ Programs\Allegro Stuff\Allegro_00\Allegro_00\bin\Debug\Allegro_00.exe"  (in C:\Documents and Settings\Numb3rz\My Documents\Programming\My C++ Programs\Allegro Stuff\Allegro_00\Allegro_00\.)
Process terminated with status 3997696 (0 minutes, 5 seconds)

Can anyone help me setup Allegro 4.2.2 and the latest nightly build of CodeBlocks with the latest MinGW compiler I have, so I can start working on my project again. Plase, Please, Please? Thanks Here's an update that I thought is worth mentioning. I recompiled the source code, and still got 0 errors, 0 warnings. And I decided hey let's go to the precise folder and run the app from there. Guess what? I was able to run it, but I still can't run the app from inside Code::Blocks, because it keeps asking me to build the project, but then when I build the project it says, Oh, it's already built nothing to do. What is up with my software?
