I finished downloading a program and got this message

"Hello World - Debug": The compiler's setup (GNU GCC Compiler) is invalid, so Code::Blocks cannot find/run the compiler.Probably the toolchain path within the compiler options is not setup correctly?! (Do you have a compiler installed?)Goto "Settings->Compiler...->Global compiler settings->GNU GCC Compiler->Toolchain executables" and fix the compiler's setup.Skipping...Nothing to be done (all items are up-to-date).

Does anyone know if this is important to completing these tutorials.

Yes, it's very important. 

It seems that you don't have a compiler installed or you do not have C:B configured to find  the compiler. 
If you didn't download the version of C:B with "mingw32" that it your next step.

If you did download the version with "mingw32" but still have a problem, then go to:

"Settings->Compiler...->Global compiler settings->GNU GCC Compiler->Toolchain executables" 

From there, make sure under "Selected Compiler" it reads, "GNU GCC Compiler".
Then on the tab for "Program Files" in the field "C++ Compiler" make sure it reads, "mingw32-g++.exe".

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance.
