I'm not sure which section this best belongs in, and I don't want to make a new account on the Netbeans forum since this is my favorite forum and I lurk here a lot. Please move it to where appropriate if this is the wrong section.
I am making a game using C++ and OpenGL and I want it to run in Windows at the minimum. Previously I had been using DevC++ but it was buggy and didn't have some of the cool features that Netbeans had so I switched over for this project.
Netbeans needed Cygwin for it's compiler and other tools. But apparently, it compiles the program so it can only be run by Cygwin.
Attempting to run it in Windows gets "Failed to open display '' ". Some searching revealed the solution is starting it in a Cygwin XServer.
My question is, how do I set up Netbeans so that it can compile for Windows, or is it not possible at all and I need a different IDE?
