RE: [cdt-dev] Project perspective lists MINGW includes for/in C++Makefile project created with "other toolchain" option

Hi Olumide.

It's common trouble, a result of unclear naming.  

To get rid of Mingw includes, go to Project Properties -> 
C / C++ general -> Paths and Symbols -> Includes tab, and 
delete unwanted includes for each language (Asm, C, C++).

In fact, "other toolchain", also known as "default toolchain",
does not mean "user's own toolchain". In fact, it's automatically
detected toolchain, referring to either Cygwin or Mingw, if one of 
them installed (I mean, on Windows. On Linux, standard C/C++
compiler is used by this toolchain). 

It was introduced as default choice, for the user who needs
"any C compiler". Unfortunately, toolchain label is too short to
explain all told above. There was a discussion, how to call it:
"No toolchain", "Default toolchain", "Other ...", "Detected ...".
As a result, "Other toolchain" was selected as the lesser evil.

With best regards, Oleg Krasilnikov

I've created a C++ Makefile project with the other toolchain option
neither Cygwin nor MINGW) -- I'm on working Windows XP, and I need to
use the Microsoft compiler to build the plugin I'm writing -- but the
MINGW include directories are still listed in my project directory (even
though I've said I'm not using that toolchain). Can something be done
about this?
