I just downloaded codeblocks-13.12mingw-setup.exe.  I want to write a simple Hello World application.  Exactly what are the steps to do this?  I'm also getting a pop-up stating GNU GCC is missing.  Where can I download this?

Please note I'm asking this question because I'm not familiar with this particular IDE.

note, for a newbie visual studio express normally is a much simpler way to learn c or c++. in the ide you would create a new empty console project and add a new .c file to the project. then you can edit your code. because of the .c extension, the build would use the ansi c compiler as default.
