I hope someone is willing to reply to my question, even though they sound not very smart, the truth is that I am trying to understand the different aspects of MinGW64, I am really confused about how it works.
 
Thanks in advance

D:\MinGW64
   +bin
      -i686-w64-mingw32-g++.exe
   +i686-w64-mingw32
      +bin
         -g++.exe
----
What is the difference between './bin/i686-w64-mingw32-g++.exe' and './i686-w64-mingw32/bin/g++.exe'? What are they used for?
 
TIA

In the‘/MinGW64’ folder I have  ‘./lib’,  ‘/bin’ and ‘./include’ subdirectories, am I to assume that this are the 32-bit files while their 64-bit counterparts are in the ‘./i686-w64-mingw32’ directory?
 
No. Depending on what exactly you downloaded (filename of the file you got suffices), some stuff will be located in different places.

I'm assuming you have downloaded a 32-bit native non-multilib toolchain, then this is the general structure:
mingw32/bin: directory to add to PATH. Contains all the toolchain executables like gcc, g++, gdb, ld, nm, etc...
mingw32/lib and mingw32/include: GCC search paths, ignore them.
mingw32/i686-w64-mingw32/include and lib: these are the MinGW-w64 headers and import libraries (the stuff built from the source you first downloaded). These include some C headers and standard Win32 API headers like windows.h

Hello there!
I just downloaded and unpacked mingw-w64-v1.0.7. in my D: directory, what else do I have to do now? is there a tutorial explaining what has to be added to the path and what is the toolchain for 32bit or 64bit apps?
 
Hi,

you downloaded the MinGW-w64 runtime source package. You want a prebuilt binary package i seems. See here for instructions:
http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/mingw-w64/wiki/GeneralUsageInstructions

If you need any more help, feel free to ask.
