    Hello.
    I have a problem.
    I am a novice programmer. I run Dev C++ on a Lenovo Yoga running Windows 8. Whenever I try to compile a program, an error window comes up and it says "g++.exe has stopped working. Windows is trying to find a solution for the problem.". Then, once it decides it has not found a solution for the problem, it says "A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

    G++ is the GNU C++ compiler, right? Well I don't know how to fix this or if the problem will be fixed in later updates to Dev C++, but do you guys have any ideas as to what the solution might be?

    Also, since I am just a beginner, I probably won't understand any complicated answers so please try to keep it as simple as possible.
