I am taking a C programming class currently, and we are starting with a Hello World program. All of the code was given, we just need to get a compiler working. I got it working with windows visual C++ fine, but it eats up a lot of drive space, and I want something portable, hence using eclipse. I downloaded CDT for eclipse, all the plugins are there, got MinGW folder in the folder I have eclipse folder in(dont know if it matters where the folders are). When creating a new program I select mingw toolchain and continue.

First thing I notice is that #include <stdio.h> gives me a warning that it is not recognized Sad. Why is this? Then I get the build error

**** Internal Builder is used for build ****
gcc -O0 -g3 -Wall -c -fmessage-length=0 -oHelloWorld.o ..\HelloWorld.c
Internal Builder: Cannot run program "gcc": Launching failed
Build error occurred, build is stopped
Time consumed: 28 ms.

Not sure if this is related to unrecognized code or not? I tried all this before and the library was recognized, but I got binary not found error, so this is strange to me. Any help would be appreciated.

Eclipse does not find your MinGW installation.
Here are some details where Eclipse will look for MingW http://wiki.eclipse.org/CDT/User/FAQ#I_installed_MinGW_toolc hain_on_my_PC_but_Eclipse_won.27t_find_it.
