i have a problem, i follow the readme file and get this result after debugging:
'mode' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
windres.exe: preprocessing failed.
mingw32-make[1]: [Makefile:320: bin/Debug/obj/Platform/Win32/Icon.res] Error 1 (ignored)

⇛  Linking: bin/Debug/sfml.exe
g++.exe: error: bin/Debug/obj/Platform/Win32/Icon.res: No such file or directory
mingw32-make[1]: *** [Makefile:351: bin/Debug/sfml.exe] Error 1
mingw32-make: *** [Makefile:259: all] Error 2

✘  Failed!
   Review the compile errors above.

The terminal process "C:\Program Files\Git\bin\bash.exe '-c', 'bash ./build.sh buildrun Debug vscode'" terminated with exit code: 1.

Terminal will be reused by tasks, press any key to close it.

i have downloaded all the necessary software, but im a noob so might have done something wrong. When the git bash popup asks for allowing it, i allow it, and the debug returns the same error.

Hi, yes, sorry.
i am using windows 7 with SP1 , 64bit
version of SFML was 2.5.1 as in the readme file
also using the mingw32 as in the readme file
as for the code editor i use visual studio code - i dont see any number of version but i downloaded it from this link: https://code.visualstudio.com/
as for compiler i use the VS Code terminal with git bash installed, although  i am not sure this is the answer you ask for.
In general i followed all the readme files.

Also i tried installing it for python via setup.py . in the license file:: PySFML - Python bindings for SFML
Copyright (c) 2012-2017, Jonathan De Wachter <dewachter.jonathan@gmail.com>
and it returns me this error:

Do you need SFML the C++ library or pySFML the Pythong binding?

I highly recommend to try and solve one thing one step at a time.
