codeblocks?????

i know that new version of allgro is out there.
but, it requires cmake, and other things,that my brain can't handle.
so, i decided to download allegro 4.2.0.
i decided to do it, as there was already a book about that.
i followed each and every steps mentioned in that book too set up dev c++ and allegro.
I think dev c++ and codeblocks are same.
so, i used that method in codeblocks..
once, it worked. and compiled hello world..
but only hello world was compiled and after that nothing worked.
So, please give me a step by step version of how to install allegr 4.2.0, with the latest version of codeblocks?

Allegro 4.2 is outdated. Allegro 4.4.3 is the latest version of Allegro 4.

For setting up a project with CB, follow the guide here :

https://wiki.allegro.cc/index.php?title=Windows,_Code::Blocks_and_Allegro_5

Replace the allegro 5 libraries listed with the allegro 4 libraries you're going to use.

i want to learn if i can make android games with allegro 5..
i am really curious for it..
