I spend several hours trying to figure out this problem, I looked on google and tried several advises but got no where.
I have installed eclipse for Arduino before and I love the IDE, so I decided to install eclipse for C++ and dump my Visual studio that was due for renewal. In any case i downloaded eclipse mars.2. I tried to run the "hello world" program and i got 2 errors "Program "g++" not found in PATH", same thing for gcc. I added the directory where MinGw is located to the windows path. From the command prompt i can g++, getting a message that it was aborted because didn't put a file name. I added the variable PATH with the MinGW directory. Don't know what else to do.
Thanks for the help.

I guess that you're running Eclipse under some version of Windows.

The Eclipse C/C++ IDE does not contain a C/C++ compiler and associated tools. It is tuned to the GNU toolset (gcc, g++ and binutils), which are available for Windows as MinGW or Cygwin packages. The packages contain also Unix-style command-line tools needed.

Please Google for MinGW, download it, and install it with the MSYS package. There are good instructions at <>.

The Eclipse CDT instructions tell how to set up the MinGW installation with Eclipse.
