    Do you actually have the windows.h header files or no?
    Code:
    void function(void)
     {
      function();
     }

    Not really. You need the libs or the headers arent much use.

    Well those 400Mb will decompress into about 1.1GB, but most of it is junk. The needed headers, and the needed libs are only maybe 100MB... download DevCpp and try to rip windows libs out of it. See i it works. MS compilers suport object files in coff format. About archives... I don't know.

    You might want to stick with Dev-C++. What problems are you having with it?
