I am very new to the C++ world and this is the first compiler that I am trying to set up for myself...

I recently installed Eclipse Helios Service Release 2 Build id: 20110218-0911. And I also installed mingw32 6.3.0-1.

After reading varioius threads and the Eclipse "Getting Started" information, I modified the PATH Environment Variable (USER: CONFIG) as follows:
C:\MinGW;C:\MinGW\bin;(various default folders);C:\eclipse;C:\MinGW\libexec\gcc\mingw32\6.3.0;
C:\MinGW\libexec\gcc\mingw32\3.4.5

When I try to use "Build Project" for a simple example main.cpp, I keep getting the following error (below). Can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong and why Eclipse isn't finding the gcc/g++ file(s)?

Thanks!

Never mind...I seemed to have stumbled over and grabbed an older install, somehow.

I installed the most recent version. Problem solved.
