    Dev C++ packages

    I downloaded some package files for Dev C++ today and they are in "Devpak" format. I tried finding a way to install these online but most sites tell you to run the runtime library files, which wasnt included with any of these. Anyone installed these before that can help?

    All you use for devpaks is the package manager(Packman). Just open that up and do the usual to get a file. Also btw rod if your looking for a good source of devpaks http://devpaks.org/ is awesome
    Woop?

    Devpaks are just renamed *.tar.bz2 files so any utility capable of decompressing that file type (for example, 7-zip) will open them for you and you can then just manually move the contents to the relevant (usually lib and include) directories or to wherever you want, for that matter.

    DevCpp comes with a 'package manager' utility which will launch and walk you through the 'installation' if you have associated devcpp with the DevPak extension when you configured it, either when you installed it or at any time thereafter with Tools menu-->Environment Options, File Associations tab. Be warned that devcpp may destroy existing file associations if you do this, so it's a good idea to save your current registry keys for any file associations you may currently have with other ide/editors (c, h, cpp etc) so that you can restore them if you encounter problems.

    You can also launch the package manager utility from within DevCPP from Tools menu-->Package Manager.
