    Dev C++ Problem...

    Hello all, so im on vacation now and i figured id bring my WIN32 API behemoth of a book with me to work on in the evenings when i am not out fishing, swimming, chillin' on the beach, etc.

    But i keep getting an error when i try to compile I haven't compiled before on this new laptop but i don't know why it wont work. Here's the error stuff:

    Compiler: Default compiler
    Executing g++.exe...
    g++.exe "C:\Documents and Settings\Doug\My Documents\Win32 API\Book Work\test2.cpp" -o "C:\Documents and Settings\Doug\My Documents\Win32 API\Book Work\test2.exe" -I"E:\Dev-Cpp\include\c++\3.3.1" -I"E:\Dev-Cpp\include\c++\3.3.1\mingw32" -I"E:\Dev-Cpp\include\c++\3.3.1\backward" -I"E:\Dev-Cpp\lib\gcc-lib\mingw32\3.3.1\include" -I"E:\Dev-Cpp\include" -L"E:\Dev-Cpp\lib"
    Execution terminated
    Thanks if you can help!

    It's mixing libs with includes and not providing the correct command line switches...
    Is this a fresh dev-c++ install? Did you download it with MinGW already packed, or did you install MinGW separately? Have you touched any compiler options on Dev-C++?

    The include list is not even in the right order...

    Ordinary console programs compile, do they?
