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;
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)?
**** Build of configuration Debug for project L5-EXAMPLE ****
**** Internal Builder is used for build ****
g++ -IC:\MinGW\include\c++\3.4.5 (and various other folders)
-O0 -g3 -Wall -c -fmessage-length=0 -omain.o ..\main.cpp
Internal Builder: Cannot run program "g++" (in directory "C:\AKH-eclipsews\L5-Example\Debug"):
CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified
Build error occurred, build is stopped
