Windows Eclipse and MinGW. How? [message #639398] Tue, 16 November 2010 12:25 Go to next message

Hi all,

I am running Windows XP, and wish to use Eclipse to develop C and C++ projects, using GCC to compile them.

I have installed Eclipse Helios Service Release 1 (Build id: 20100917-0705), and it seems to work fine.

I have installed MinGW into the default directory and added the path, and it seems to work fine. (Eclipse finds it, and also I can type gcc -v at the command line, and gcc runs ok.)

I started a new Hello World ANSI C project in Eclipse, and selected MinGW GCC toolchain.

I clicked build, and got this error:


**** Build of configuration Debug for project Hugo2 ****

**** Internal Builder is used for build ****
g++ -O0 -g3 -Wall -c -fmessage-length=0 -osrc\Hugo2.o ..\src\Hugo2.cpp
Build error occurred, build is stopped
Time consumed: 281 ms.





I cannot for the life of me understand what this means. What's the error? Have I missed something obvious? Please help.

Many thanks in advance.

Hugo

Did you look at the sticky post at the top of this forum?

It helps a lot to go looking for answers before assuming you're the only
one who has had the problem. For example, out there I find:

....and many more.
