    Hi, sorry for the long absence,

    I just tried that, it didn't work.

    I moved it from C:\dev-c++ (or w/e the folder's called) to C:\Program Files

    I'm still getting the same error.

    --Tryce (getting frustrated with the program)

    Actually, it is better off in C:\dev-c++, spaces in paths cause erratic problems with Dev-C++
    The default with Dev-C++ 4.9.9.0 should be C:\Dev-Cpp

    Perhaps you could describe the current problem that you're facing?

    maybe you should.....
    1. uninstall the current Dev_C++
    2. download the setup for Dev-C++ 4.9.9.0
    3. install it...........with the default directory provided while installing.......

    use all default settings while starting.......just to be on the safer side

    since i feel either the compiler is not installed correctly or something is missing.

    try this and tell me if it works......

    Hi!

    I have downloaded and installed Dev C++ 4.9.9.0 with all of the default settings. I tried typing in the first code in the Tutorial and hit Compile and Run (since compile and then run won't work for some reason). The same error still occurs (see first post).

    I'm beginning to wonder if it's my computer. I'm running this on Windows XP Home Edition. Could it be that I'm not able to code on this OS? That would be dissapointing. . .

    Hi Tryce,

    I have no idea if this'll help or not but I figure it's worth a shot posting it just in case. I got DevC++ from a disk in the back of my first C++ book. There's a fairly good step by step procedure on how to install it including the following:

    As you probably know if you've spent more than a coffee break's worth of time installing software, setting options is a procedure unto itself. In this case, Dev-C++ has two options that must be set before you can use it. Set 'em as follows:

    1. Choose tools->Compiler Options.

    2. Choose the Settings tab.

    3. Choose Code Generation from the menu on the left. Make sure that the Enable Exception Handling is enabled... if it isn't, click on the option box to display the two choices and select Yes.

    4. Choose Linker and make sure the Generate Debugging Information option is enabled.

    5. Choose Ok.
    Don't know if this is even related to your problem or not but, again, I figured it couldn't hurt to post just in case.

    Good luck and hope you get it up and running as soon as you can.

    You dont have to enable exception handling and generate debugging information in order for GCC to work.

    But yeah, I actually chose Win XP Pro over Home for my version of MS Windows just in case there were problems in some development environment.
    We may need someone who's running a compiler on Win XP Home to check that this really isnt the case.

    I use Win Xp Home with Dev-C++ and things seem to compile just fine. But my XP Home is the japanese version so... I don't know if that confirms or disproves anything as there may be differences between mine and the english version that I don't know about.

    Hi!
    I had the same problem, searched for it on Google, but just found this Thread - and you didn't solve it (?).

    So I tried a few things, here is my solution:
    I'm German and we have some stupid letters like ä,ö,ü and ß. I saved my project in ...\2_Ergänzungen\Ergänzungen.dev

    So now I replaced the ä by ae, and everything works fine. Maybe check this out...

    Sorry for my bad English
