    can anyone help me with mingw?

    Hello everyone I downloaded mingw today from www.mingw.org and I also downloaded the visual mingw ide from visual-mingw.sourceforge.net. I followed the instructions and got it all set up but when I try to compile anything I get an error that says something like "envoking compiler gcc file not found" I'm at work so I can't verify it word for word.

    Anyway when I go into the options there is a section for me to set where the compiler is located and I have it set to the mingw\bin directory, when I search that's where I find gcc. Has anyone else experienced this?

    don't know what to tell you
    did you try the bugs section on the sourceforge page? try asking people there too as they'll probably be of more help
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX

    Nevermind I got it working. I had gcc located somewhere else in my path first and it was messing it up, working fine now. Thanks anyway.
