Code::Blocks with MSVC2013

This is a quick placeholder post on how to set up the C++ IDE Code::Blocks with the Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 tool chain. The main information is found in this PDF.

Quote from the PDF:

“This document aims to explain a way to configure Code::Blocks on Windows using different Visual
Studio C++ compilers and Windows SDKs. Where relevant it is discussed how to compile for x86
(32bit) and x64 (64bit) executables.

The general approach taken is to employ the Code::Blocks global variables for configuration of the
compiler and related tools, i.e. set the global variable values according to the needs of the compiler,
SDK and target processor architecture. Examples are provided for MSVC2010 and MSVC2013. By
extension, it should be feasible to reconfigure for other MSVC versions.”

If you have questions or comments to the method described, please comment below.
