    Dev-C++ Compilation Problems

    I have GTK and MSYS installed under Windows Vista. When I try to compile a c program using GTK libraries, I get the following error message:

    gcc.exe: installation problem, cannot exec `cc1': No such file or directory

    I have already made sure that Dev-C++ and that MinGW were in my environment path. If anyone knows of a solution, please help. Thank you.

    I downloaded the executable from sourceforge and I installed it to my main hard drive ie(C:\MinGW), adding C:\MinGW\bin to the PATH environment variable. The Dev-C++ I subsequently downloaded was the one without minGW.

    Dev-C++ has 'issues' running under vista. I recommend you switch to CodeBlocks IDE, as it works better under vista.

    Personally, I use Dev-C++, CodeBlocks, VS 6.0, and VS 2005. I much prefer the microsoft IDE, but the mingw compiler seems to produce smaller faster code. devc++ cant seem to handle K&R style no matter what combination of settigns I use, it always messes up the brackets and tabs, although i can get pretty close. CodeBlocks does a much better job of emulating the MS IDE.
