CodeBlocks wxWidgets in Windows with 100% working Setup

To complete CodeBlocks wxWidgets in Windows I tried lot of times but always there is an error while compiling ( if not exist gcc_mswu mkdir gcc_mswu ). here the successful steps
1. It may be easy to install CodeBlock by simply downloading from here and click install in windows.
2. Download and unzip wxWidgets (version i used wxWidgets 3.0.1) from here
3. Goto control panel->system->Advance settings->Environment variable->Edit path variable (system level path)
Copy entire path value and save in a text file now Remove every thing from path (Be-live me)
and add only codeblock/mingw/bin path(check below example) to path variable and click ok.
example : C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\MinGW\bin
4. Very Important open command prompt as Administrator
5. Goto wxWidgets\build\msw (check below example) location in command prompt
example: E:\wxWidgets-3.0.1\build\msw
6. Run Below commands one by one
mingw32-make.exe -f makefile.gcc clean 
mingw32-make.exe -f makefile.gcc USE_XRC=1 SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=release UNICODE=0
mingw32-make.exe -f makefile.gcc USE_XRC=1 SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=debug UNICODE=0

Same command two times one for Release and another for Debug
7. Now In codeblock while creating wxWidget project select wxWidgets extracted folder as path
example: E:\wxWidgets-3.0.1
8. Edit path variable add previously saved path to existing path by separating with semicolon (;) .
example : C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\MinGW\bin; previously_saved_path
