    This is called bumping and considered very rude.

    You don't have a C++ problem but a compiler/IDE setup problem. DevC++ has its own support forum (but be sure to read the FAQ's first).
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.

    So, Dev-C++'s g++ works manually.

    In that case, it seems most likely to me that the Makefiles in the examples are not working properly. Try re-creating the project -- create a new project and add in the Hello.cpp source file that is part of the example.

    I would hazard a guess that your path is not the problem, because g++ is being executed
    g++.exe -c Hello.cpp -o Hello.o -I"D:/Dev-Cpp/lib/gcc/mingw32/3.4.2/include"\
     -I"D:/Dev-Cpp/include/c++/3.4.2/backward" -I"D:/Dev-Cpp/include/c++/3.4.2/mingw32"\
     -I"D:/Dev-Cpp/include/c++/3.4.2" -I"D:/Dev-Cpp/include"
    g++.exe: Hello.cpp: No such file or directory
    g++.exe: no input files
    and because it works manually.

    Something that will almost certainly work, but will require a bit of effort, is this. Edit the makefile, that is, D:\Dev-Cpp\Examples\Hello\ Where ever it says "Hello.cpp" or "Hello.o" or "Hello.exe" in this makefile, put the full path -- i.e., change "Hello.cpp" to "D:\Dev-Cpp\Examples\Hello\Hello.cpp", and so on.

    The animated attached image is really neat.
