    error: Id returned 5 exit status

    So I was making a simple cURL program to retrieve a string from a website. But, when I compile the program, the program returned this error: [Error] Id returned 5 exit status. I've included the cURL library in the project (libcurl.dll). Do you know how to fix this error? :/

    Here's the code:
    Code:
    using namespace std;
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    #include "curl.h"
    
    /* run this program using the console pauser or add your own getch, system("pause") or input loop */
    
    static size_t WriteCallback(void *contents, size_t size, size_t nmemb, void *userp)
    {
        ((std::string*)userp)->append((char*)contents, size * nmemb);
        return size * nmemb;
    }
    
    int main(int argc, char** argv) {
      CURL *curl;
      CURLcode res;
      string readBuffer;
    
      curl = curl_easy_init();
      if(curl) {
        curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "icanhazip.com");
        curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, WriteCallback);
        curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_WRITEDATA, &readBuffer);
        res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
        curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
        cout << readBuffer << endl;
        return 0;
    }
    }

    Which OS/compiler/IDE are you using?

    Does it know where to find the dll?

    Did you follow the library naming convention for your system?
    For example on linux, it would be
    gcc prog.c -lcurl
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Ah yeah, I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Dev-C++ as the IDE, and the compiler is MinGW. I've pointed the dll file in the linker.
