I recently switched back to Windows on my primary computer and installed codeblocks bundled with MinGW. Now every time I launch the IDE I get a message warning me that codeblocks can't find my compiler. I've tried entering the location in compiler options and setting it as an environment variable. The only thing I've found that works is resetting defaults which is a pain because I also have to redo all my own changes to the default every time I start up. Any ideas?

How are you adding MinGW to Codeblocks? In Settings>Compiler and Debugger...>Global compiler settings>Toolchain executables you should be able to add manually the MinGW folder address. –  Doktoro Reichard Oct 7 '13 at 22:09
