    Dev-C++ wont let me compile

    when i try to compile my stuff, it just says the system cannot find the file specified. Also heres the code for more details:

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main()
      printf( "I am alive!  Beware.\n" );
      return 0;
    and also when i open Dev-C++, it shows a window, heres a screenie:

    and BTW i also am trying to learn to make psp homebrew, while learning regular C (coz i need to) so i use CYGWIN to compile my EBOOT.PBPs and i have pspsdk set on it, so im forced to use Dev-C++

    P.S. the code is from a tutorial i am using on this site. You probably know that, but just to make sure.

    You said that screenshot comes up when you open the IDE or when you try to compile? Maybe it installing improperly. Try reinstalling.

    NOT problem with code. Seems to be a gcc install problem. Try using gcc from the command line ("<gcc-path> <input file> -o <output file> -Wall"). If it doesn't work either, reinstall Dev-C++.
    #include <stdio.h>
    void J(char*a){int f,i=0,c='1';for(;a[i]!='0';++i)if(i==81){
    /3*3+f/3*9+f%3]==c||a[i%9+f*9]==c||a[i-i%9+f]==c)goto e;a[i]=c;J(a);a[i]
    ='0';e:;}}int main(int c,char**v){int t=0;if(c>1){for(;v[1][
    t];++t);if(t==81){J(v[1]);return 0;}}puts("sudoku [0-9]{81}");return 1;}
