First off, I have next to no experience in C++ (although I know BASIC). I do all my programming offline on a computer with Windows ME, due to restrictions brought about by family (I'm 17). Because I use a Legacy OS, CodeBlocks won't work, so I use Dev-C++. But it won't compile my programs.
I wrote a basic "Hello World" program:
*Note: Even if there is something wrong w/ my program, my problem still happens even when I use Dev-C++'s example programs.
using namespace std;
int main ()
cout << "Hello World!";
When I click compile, it opens a file dialog. I'm assuming it wants me to save my script, yes? After I save, the compiling window opens and it waits for a few seconds, but before it makes any progress, I get the following error message (word for word):
The LIBGMPXX-4.DLL file is
linked to missing export MSVCRT.DLL:___lc_codepage_func.
I hate those words. I've seen them so often, I could quote them from memory.
Can someone either explain this or give me a free version of XP so I can use CodeBlocks?
PS I also found the ANSI version of Notepad++, so if someone could show me how to install some sort of compiler plug-in, that would work too.
PPS Sorry I'm so long-winded
