    Question Problem executing sample program:

    I have installed the Devcpp version 4 and version 401 update as

    instructed. I ran the sample program indicated on the main page

    of "How do I use A Compiler". Upon executing and run the sample

    program, I received error messages indicating that Icon file not

    found (please change it in Project Options). The question is

    where do I change this under project options tab? Version 4.


    Also similar error was received while I ran the updated version

    Devcpp401. The error is C:\Dev_C~1\Bin\Windres: can't open file

    icon file 'C:\devcpp401\Icon\Mainicon.ico:Invalid arument.

    Please help: mrabiu

    I just downloaded and installed Dev-Cpp the other day, and it says that it is Version 4.9.8.0 (don't know if it is different from yours).

    Well, after installation, I clicked

    File --> Open Project or File.

    Then I used the resulting dialog box to navigate to Dev-CPP\Examples\Hello.

    There was a file named "Hello.dev"

    I selected that, and it compiled and executed OK.

    Have you done anything like this?

    Start with the simplest example, to validate your installation, then get to the "good stuff".

    Good Luck!

    Remember when you update Dev C++ to uninstall it completely. If not, you'll have major effing problems.

    http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/d...devcpp4980.exe

    That's the download.



    On uninstalling completely:

    Hi CSmith,

    I have downloaded version 4980 and installed it. I was using an
    older version which was not compatible with my OS.
    Thanks for the information.
