View Full Version : GCC out of the box on windows

July 24th, 2007, 08:13 AM
I'm pretty sure it's impossible, but who knows.
Is there an easy way to install GCC on windows through a simple setup.exe installer? (There _is_ one for GTK+)
On Linux I don't have to install it cause it's already there, while on windows I gotta learn anything from scratch to be able to install GCC.

Check out http://sourceforge.net/projects/gcw/ and http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-help/2000-03/msg00120.html

http://www.cygwin.com/ provides gcc. It is trivial to install packages. Start the setup.exe, select your packages, and go.

There are also the MinGW (http://www.mingw.org) project and djgpp (http://www.delorie.com/djgpp) project that provide windows port of gcc.
MinGW comes in a single setup.exe sort of installer whereas djgpp is shipped as separate zips for every component.

Thanks, currently the cygwin setup is downloading the files.
