that's my problem dev-c++ and other free compilers are the same as piece's of crap when installed on my computer. they just don't work or i get errors all of the time.
with my DM compiler i can get by usually with common errors that are not difficult to fix.
is the dev-c++ update thingy working yet? i use to have it for a few months waiting for the update server go be up and back online but it never was so i just unistalled it.
