    MinGW and C++ just won't work, reports bunch of errors..

    Today I downloaded all the packages manually and unpacked them into the 'gcc' directory and added it to the path. When I compile C files, it works. However, when I try compiling ANY C++ code that includes ANY C++ headers it reports ENORMOUSLY much errors, like so (there's so much error's that it can't fit into the console):

    First, show us the code and the command line you're compiling with. Second, what version of gcc? You should be using 3.4.5 - if you're using the technology preview of gcc4, there are files missing - they're in the gjc packages. (Don't ask me why.)

    According to the manifests I keep, the following is the minimal set of packages required for gcc/g++:
    Code:
     1 gcc-core-3.4.5-20060117-3.tar.gz
     2 gcc-g++-3.4.5-20060117-3.tar.gz
     3 binutils-2.19-mingw32-rc1-bin.tar.gz
     4 mingw32-make-3.81-20080326-3.tar.gz
     5 mingwrt-3.15.1-mingw32.tar.gz
     6 w32api-3.12-mingw32-dev.tar.gz
     7 mingw-utils-0.3.tar.gz
    Edit: Also, you'll get nicer output if you redirect the output to a file, instead of copying directly from the terminal -- you won't get those spurious newlines.

    GCJ?? Yes, I'm using 4.3.0 and the command line is gcc test.cpp or g++ test.cpp. If so, I'll download GCJ and report back.

    You don't need the whole thing, just the C++ files that are in the package. My memory says it's fairly obvious where they are.
    The MinGW maintainers note that this will be corrected with the next release. Whenever that is.

    I've had bad luck with gcc4. Some packages won't build at all with it.

    Edit: the gcc test.cpp command line will fail, but not with the errors you're seeing. The g++ test.cpp should have worked (or failed with different errors).

    I have used the GCC4 from MinGW, and I don't recall having done anything special...

    What a failure from GNU, I can't believe it. I downloaded GCJ and the C++ files in it were headers located at ...\lib\gcc\mingw32\4.3.0\include\c++\ and now it works, don't they think about dial-up users??

    I think the distribution error is only present in the most recent release (May 2008, IIRC), so if you downloaded before then, you're fine. Also, if you've never used the C++ compiler, you're also fine.

    I'm not sure if they have a "all together" installer exe or not for gcc4, I'd imagine that if they did that might work? I regularly install from just the binary tar.gz's, so I have no idea.

    Most things work alright with gcc4, but IIRC, icu does not compile. There may be others, so at that point I fell back to gcc 3.4.5 until gcc 4 reachs a stable point. (If the MinGW community ever gets there...)

    Just an aside, but whats the reason for not using VSExpress if you are targetting windows?
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Should I explain my philosophies of computer freedom and all-user contributing?
    I like GNU, I like freedom as an beer, so in speech. I don't hate M$, but I don't like them much, I have my reasons. Another thing is that MinGW is not unusable compared to VC (as some may think), it is very practical and once you get into the trick it's better than it.
    You may ask why am I using Windows then.. Well the answer is simple, I'm too lazy to get a Linux distro (as you've seen from my connection). I have my friend download slackware, so Linux may not be a far future from now.

    GCC 4 has been stable for quite a while, now. Virtually all Linux distributions have switched to GCC 4 as the default compiler for quite a few years already.

    It's just MinGW, or legacy code.

    Just an aside, but whats the reason for not using VSExpress if you are targetting windows?
    For me, it's because I write my code on Linux, with GCC. It's a lot less work getting it to compile in MinGW GCC than a totally different compiler (MSVC). And also I can reuse my Makefiles, etc.

    I am a lot more familiar with GCC, too.

    What's the reason for NOT using GCC?

    I'm not taking sides here, I use MinGW myself for a lot of things that VS can't (easily) do, like writing single application boot images. I'm just suggesting that if you are already targetting windows for your application, it would be obtuse not to use VS as it is in my professional opinion much more suited to the task of writing windows applications than MinGW.

    I know you're neutral. It's just that I'm not a professional programmer, I'm more of a hobbyist, so big badass IDE's are not well suited for me. Thanks for trying, though.

    It's a fair question. Mostly habit, I suppose - I grew up programming on a Windows 98 system, which MSVS Express would not install on. gcc is also much more lax on disk requirements (although it lacks an IDE, but I am quite comfortable in Notepad++). I usually carry a copy of gcc/g++ on a thumbdrive.

    GCC 4 has been stable for quite a while, now. Virtually all Linux distributions have switched to GCC 4 as the default compiler for quite a few years already.
    Sorry, I suppose that needed a bit of qualification. The MinGW distribution of gcc 4 only - on any other OS, absolutely: you should be using gcc 4.
