As such, support for the software was established. CodeBlocks is a free and open-source integrated development environment (IDE). GVSU utilizes CodeBlocks for the Padnos College of Engineering and Computing.

Opening CodeBlocks

CodeBlocks exists in 3 primary locations:

  • Physical Labs
    • Kennedy (all labs)
    • Keller (all labs)
    • Innovation Design Center (all labs)
  • WinLab
  • STRATUS

The process to open the program properly differs depending on the system you are using.

Opening CodeBlocks in a Physical Lab

If a user is in a EGR physical lab location, they may log in, and find the “Lab Applications” folder which should be on the desktop after login. From there, users will open the “Engineering” folder, where the shortcut for CodeBlocks exists. The user will then double click that shortcut to open CodeBlocks.

WinLab

Users may access CodeBlocks via WinLab the same way as a physical lab. WinLab emulates a Physical lab so a user can continue working outside of a classroom lab. More on accessing WinLab here.

STRATUS

The GVSU STRATUS system also supports CodeBlocks. Note that the only image in STRATUS which contains CodeBlocks at this time is the EGR-FirstYear image. In order to see this image, users will need to be a part of the “EGR-StratusStudents” group. Users are assigned to groups based on course enrollment.

A user will need to login to an EGR-FirstYear image and then double click the CodeBlocks shortcut on the desktop. The program should run as expected.
