Code::Blocks 10.05 crashes when starting a new project

1 post in this topic

I've been using Visual Studio for a little while but I want to go cross-platform. I've just done a fresh install of Code::Blocks 10.05 (with MinGW) from the binary. I open it up and whenever I go to start a new project (whether from the file menu or the start page) it crashes. I saw on the CB forums that it would output the error log to the codeblocks.RPT file, so here's that:

Error occured on Friday, June 15, 2012 at 11:06:10.

Codeblocks 10:05 is over two years old. Try installing a "nightly" build instead.
