    Eclipse C++ problem

    I wasn't quite sure where to post this but...

    I've never been able to get Eclipse to launch a c++ project. I get a "Binary Not found" error. I have minGW installed and it works.Eclipse installed and works fine otherwise, even the java version works. I'm not sure what binary in being referred to. Can anyone help?

    I have heard that this is an issue common with Eclipse. :\ I don't use it so I am not sure why that is, from personal experience. I just have known of people to mention it being screwy like that.

    I don't believe you can use MSVS with wine. There are comparable IDE's on linux, in my opinion. I use gedit on linux and notepad on windows.

    I have been trying eclipse fedora on a different machine as well but with no luck. I really can't figure it out. Nobody on here uses eclipse?

    I finally got a program to work in Eclipse, but I have to start it through their "Hello World" example project which has the binary part of it already set up and working. I just haven't figured out how to create the binaries from a source file yet I guess.

    Thanks for the codeblocks suggestion by the way, I got that to and it works fine.

    i had the same problem but now everything works, i dont know why, but i remember what i did:
    right click on your project, go to properties, run/debug settings, new, c/c++ local application, ok, choose a name, ok, and then go to project, build all, check if theres no errors, then run. That worked for me

    2. But what were the initial steps you followed to load the project and the file before you came to the position described above ??
