compile a program

Hi!
I need to compile a GitHub program but I don't know how to program.
Could someone generate the .exe for me to use this program please?

Thank you very much.

give a man a fish and you can feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you can feed him for a lifetime.

I think this code should compile with MSVC as well as MinGW/GCC compiler.

Compiling the code from an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) will probably be the easieset.

It looks like those sources already come with a project file (.cbp) for the Code::Blocks IDE.

So, probably all you need to do is: Open the project file in Code::Blocks and click the "compile" button.

Besides, you may wish to have a look at the "releases" section of the project ;-)

But also, you shouldn't trust us to give you an exe.

I don't know how to program.

A couple of FREE online tutorials might help. Did I mention they are free?

1. CPlusPlus here has one:

2. Learn C++:

Code::Blocks or Visual Studio are more or less similar with some useful tools so as to compile and run quickly a simple project. First, you should learn how to use these compilers and their IDE. If you want to do something easier, I recommend you another platform like Unity, but it doesn't use C++, but C#. It could be a good start for beginners in prog. Or you could use an on-line compiler in order to elaborate your first scripts. I wish you the best ++

Thanks for the answers. But I'm not a programmer. I just wanted to use the program and couldn't contact the developer.

Could someone compile it for me? Please.

does that exe that was provided on the git site work ?

normally I would say that deserves a double face palm, but to be fair, GIT is really aggravating for non-users / non-coders to jump into cold so you get a pass :P To be less fair, someone else already said this...

Done. I took the project which is a little bit deprecated - but after a few modifications, it has been compiled without problem. I test it (yes I know that it's just stupid) and it works as expected. However, I have no clue what I am supposed to do. Download it. Test it - and please, let me know what it does ++

Hello Geckoo!
First of all, thanks for your help.
The program is for creating hot corners for certain actions, like minimizing windows and switching programs. Click on the taskbar icon to open the configuration screen.

The build worked, but it is constantly displaying a console. Is it possible not to display this window?
Hello bperdigao. This one works without a console. Exactly it disappears after a few seconds displaying a short information. This way, the user knows that the application is running, and it is still available in the task bar. I hope that it will be useful for you. I tried this little application and I really like it. Clever ++
