    Getting C Compiler for NetBeans

    Hey I recently changed to using Netbeans because I will be learning how to program in many languages.

    So far, I managed to put Ruby and Java onto Netbeans. However, I want to put C/C++ into Netbeans and it's just not working well.

    Now, I found Missing Native Build Tools. I correctly linked my Base Directory to

    and the necessary slots for C compiler/C++ compiler are filled correctly. But when I click okay it says

    ! was unexpected at this time.
    C:\Dev-cpp\bin\make.exe: *** [.validate-impl] Error 255
    BUILD FAILED (exit value 2, total time: 237 ms0
    What does this mean and how do I fix it so Netbeans can compile my code?

    I think you got the wrong forum buddy. This is C programming not NetBeans Troubleshooting.

    I suggest that you follow the instructions given concerning the use of MinGW as described in Introducing Netbeans C/C++ Pack.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
