    Dev-C++ Problem.


    Im a newbie and im trying to setup a dev environment on my laptop. Ive downloaded Dev-C++ and i keep getting a error message when i start it.

    The msg:
    There doesnt seem to be GNU Make file PATH or in Dev-C++'s Bin path. Please make sure you have GNU Make and adjust Bin setting or system PATH environment variable and that make setting in Compiler Option contains corect filename, or you will not be able to compile anything.

    Ive changed a few options and searched google adn the forums but i cant seem to solve the problem, can someone tell me where im going wrong.

    There are two dev-cpp downloads:
    • the bare ide (Dev-C++ 5.0 beta 9.2 (, executable only (2.4 MB) )*
    • the ide plus MinGW compiler and tools (Dev-C++ 5.0 beta 9.2 ( (9.0 MB) with Mingw/GCC 3.4.2 )
    You probably downloaded and installed the 2MB one so you don't have a compiler - uninstall it and download and install the 9MB one.

    Welcome to the boards.

    *Alternatively, install MinGW yourself and configure dev-cpp to use it: Tools menu --> compiler options, directories tab.
