Hi everyone! I have an easy solution:
1) you need to go "windows\preferences\c/c++\build\environment"
2) then just click Add...
3) Set fields with the next values:
Name: PATH
Value: C:\MinGW\bin
where "C:\MinGW\bin" is your real path where mingw binaries are stored. (to make sure that you set the right path just go to this directory and find gcc.exe or g++.exe. if you find it it's ok.)
4) Choose "Append variables to native environment"
5) Press "Apply" and then "OK"

Now everything works fine.
Hope I helped someone.

P.S.
Sorry for my English.

Your English is far easier to understand than native speakers who assume a huge amount of knowledge.

I have followed your steps, but i have the following problems:

Problem pane:
Description Resource Path Location Type
Program "g++" not found in PATH Preferences, C++/Build/Settings/Discovery, [CDT GCC Built-in Compiler Settings] options C/C++ Scanner Discovery Problem
Program "gcc" not found in PATH Preferences, C++/Build/Settings/Discovery, [CDT GCC Built-in Compiler Settings] options C/C++ Scanner Discovery Problem
undefined reference to `WinMain' [project name] line 0, external location: C:\MinGW\x86_64-w64-mingw32\lib\libmingw32.a(lib64_libmingw32_a-crt0_c.o):crt0_c.c C/C++ Problem


A little red X symbol on the project in the Project explorer

When i choose Run/Run or Run/Debug, I get the error "Launching [project name].exe has encountered a problem., Program file does not exist.

Indeed the file does not exist at that location, and I have no idea how to put it there. Can anyone help please?

Thanks
