    1. Because the problem is not resolved in the thread.
    2. Because I had exactly the same problem last week.

    So it appears that there is a faulty version of GCC being sent
    out by
    http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/zip-picker.html

    If you install the default version as I did, you will find
    it won't work. It certaintly won't if you get the file I got.
    You are welcome to try it.

    Well, the default options don't download C++ support. Maybe you need to do that.

    That's not an excuse. You're not supposed to post in threads over 2 weeks old.

    You're supposed to get at least five files! No wonder one of them doesn't work!

    If I click OK with the default settings (http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/zip-picker.cgi) I get a list of files:
    Code:
    unzip32.exe          to unzip the zip files         95 kb
    
    v2/copying.dj        DJGPP Copyright info            3 kb

    Total bytes to download: 19,400,446
    One of those files isn't going to work.

    *Well if that's the case why don't they lock such threads?

    *I got all the files, I was referring to the whole group.

    I have both versions on my machine.
    I can switch version my renaming the folders \DJGCC to
    \DJGCC.old with the same enviroment variables.
    One folder works (old files) the new set don't work.

    Have you actually downloaded that instalation and confirmed it
    works? My download of it was a only a week or so ago so
    will probably be the same set of files.



    As I said the bug is known, he mistypes djgcc as dgjcc somewhere
    and that fault is obviously still in the current down which I got
    (standard download for XP (and probably W98 too).

    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.

    Yes, I did, about a month ago for a friend. It worked perfectly. What is the %DJGPP% line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file? (Did you make it %DJGCC%?)
