Hello, I'm completely new to allegro, and I have tried every tutorial for installing it I found through the internet, but none seems to work for me. I use Windows 7, 64 bit, Code Blocks 10.5 and I'm trying to install Allegro 5.
My latest hope was the one I found on this thread: http://www.allegro.cc/forums/thread/606041
I follow every instruction as it is written, have no problems whatsoever during the installation, even when I build the example program there's no warning. However, when I try run the example, I get:
Assertion failed: dm.dmFields & 0x00100000, file C:\CodeBlocks\allegro\src\win\wsystem.c, line 361
And Windows closes the program.
From what I've found on the net, this is due to the assertion on the wsystem file in line 361 being false, but I never modified it, so I don't get this problem at all.
I've searched the forums for a similar problem without success, so I'm writing here, hoping anyone can help me, because I really want to use allegro, but it's like my 5th failed installation method.
Also, if the thread I was following does not work, please tell me so I can try another way, and If anyone knows the best, with the smallest chance of error method to install allegro with my specs, please tell me.
Thanks for the attention and I hope someone can help me solve this.
