    First thing to do would be to move all your code into say
    Code:
    c:\code
    Putting your own work inside the compiler installation directory is a really bad idea.

    It's probably not a bad idea (once you've moved your code somewhere else) to reinstall the compiler just to make sure you haven't trashed something already.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    that's not your problem. you should install dev in the C directory ie. C:\Devcpp, but your main problem is you need to uninstall your previous version of dev first.

    first use the uninstall option that comes with dev and uninstall the software.

    then go to your start menu
    go to search
    select all files and folders
    type in: devcpp. *
    when that search is over erase all the files that show up then

    repeat the search and destroy procedures again using:
    devcpp.cfg and devcpp.ini

    once you've found all those remaining files and destoryed them. download dev again and do a clean install.

    let me know how it turns out.
