Hey guys,
I've just installed Eclipse Indigo 3.7.2 on my PC with Windows 8, but it don't want to compile. I also installed CDT 8.0.2.

When i try to compile my file AccountTest.cpp it gets me this error:

**** Rebuild of configuration Debug for project Homework1 ****

**** Internal Builder is used for build               ****
cl /c /EHs /MD /Zi /nologo /FoAccountTest.obj ..\AccountTest.cpp
Internal Builder: Cannot run program "cl": Launching failed
Error: Program "cl" is not found in PATH

PATH=[C:/Program Files/Java/jre7/bin/client;C:/Program Files/Java/jre7/bin;C:/Program Files/Java/jre7/lib/i386;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\MinGw\lib;c:\MinGw\bin;;C:\eclipse;]
Build error occurred, build is stopped
Time consumed: 139  ms.  


I've already set the environment variable "Path", adding a semicolon and typing "C:\MinGw\lib;c:\MinGw\bin;".

I'm using, as you can see, a MinGW C++ compiler.

Eclipse gives me also an error when I include whatever library. For example, when I include <iostream> it says to me "Unresolved inclusion" and so Eclipse cannot resolve any cout or cin operation. I'm sure that this depends by this error.

Can you help me?
Thank you.

Hello,

cl is not the name of the gcc compiler, so I guess you have selected the wrong Toolchain when you create the example project.

For a test create the included "Hello Worlds" example and when you create the project, select the "MinGW GCC" toolchain.

Check you MinGW install also. Did you use the MinGW installer from this page?
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/Installer/mingw-get-inst/

Install the compiler and the MSYS package.

Then add this to the Path:
C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin;C:\MinGW\bin;

This adds the path to the compiler AND to MSYS.

regards,
Klaus

Hi,

MinGW 32 bit works fine under Win7-64!

If you use the installer, clean up your PC, remove old not working copies of MinGW.


If you really (really?) need a 64 Bit-Version check this link:

http://mingw-w64.sourceforge.net/

regards,
Klaus

Please show that you have read http://wiki.eclipse.org/IRC_FAQ and provide version numbers, etc. Reading http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html would also likely be useful.
