    I'm *pretty* sure about this...when you compile a program, Dev-C++ checks the time/date stamp on various files to help verify that the linker is not using out of date .obj files to construct the exe.
    I used Dev-C++ 5 for a couple of days and got similar errors...but that was the least of the problems since I had a hard time just getting programs to compile successfully. Even programs that had previously compiled on Dev-C++ 4

    it still compiles ok, I was just curious what it was.

    I've only found one thing wrong with the new version of 5. The old version of 5 however, was terrible
