CDT picks up the other undesired toolkit [message #1109627] Sun, 15 September 2013 18:42 Go to next message

I am using CDT 8.2.0 on Eclipse Kepler Version: 4.3.0.v20130605-2000.
I am trying to use the MinGW version 4.6.1 (according to gcc -v).

The snag is that I also have Strawberry Perl installed, and it too has some version of MinGW installed deep inside.

It looks like CTD is picking up this Srtawberry Perl toolchain instead of my directly installed MinGW/MSYS toolchain. This creates some trouble in CDT paradise.

How can I tell CDT to steer clear of that undesired bundled toolchain and go for the one I installed directly?

Both toolchains appear in the PATH variable as I use Perl, even edit it with Eclipse, so removing Strawberry Perl from PATH is not an option. Also, MinGW and MSYS appears before Strawberry Perl in the PATH.

I am not sure what, and how much more, information is needed to solve this.

Thanks for any help.

/Ulf A.

Move path to Perl directories after the path to MinGW or Cygwin in the PATH variable.

StrawberryPearl adds its bin directory and toolchain to both, the system path variable and the user path variable. Make sure that it's behind your desired toolchain in both!
