Hello,

I've been using Orwell DevC++ for some time now.

When I started using it, from 5.2.0.3, it automatically overwrites my old DevC++ 4.9.9.2 and works fine with my college assignments using glut.h.
Then I had that one trouble where I lost my compilers after upgrading to 5.3.0.1, and now I know its because the 5.3.0.1 no-compiler installer made a new folder and new DevC++ (was installing outside ProgramFiles, even though 5.2.0.3 found the path, 5.3.0.1 somehow dont find it and made a new path instead) and made me lost my compiler (old issue I posted on comments on blog)

Was fixed after DL and installing the one with TDM-GCC x64. But now another problem arises.

When I want to return to work on my glut files for college assignments, the glut were not readable. I realized its because I haven't re-installed the glut package after installing 5.3.0.1 with TDM-GCC, so I tried reinstalling the glut. But somehow it didnt do anything.

Even after (I know its bad) trying to copy the glut files manually, it wont get recognized.

Can you please add a compatibility or way to install the glut package?

Thank you very much in advance :)

    Can you tell me a bit more about this first?

    Some years ago when I installed Dev-CPP I installed it in the C:\ directly, not in the ProgramFiles(x86). When I first used Orwell, I DL'ed the 5.2.0.3 no-compiler one, and when I initiated the update it runs fine and it points directly to my C:\Dev-Cpp. So I don't have to think and just clicked next while skimming through the context and there's no problem.

    Last month I saw the 5.3.0.1 posted, so I decided to DL another no-compiler version like before, and installed it. But somehow the installer didn't recognize the path and automatically asks me to install in C:\Program Files (x86)\Dev-Cpp instead (which I didn't realize was a wrong path, my bad) and I just clicked through until it was finished.
    When I tried to compile it later, the "List index out of bounds (0) (at address 0x001211DD)" Error appeared, which I posted in comments, and that time you answered it's because my compiler is gone, which I saw was true. Because I don't know what to do at the time and I need to do assignments fast, I DL'ed the TDM-GCC one and re-installed (again it points at the new folder, not the old one) and it works again.

    However just now when I was checking the folders because of the glut installing problem, I saw my old C:\Dev-Cpp folder, complete with my old glut, which reminds me of the missing compilers, and realized it was not missing---the path was simply incorrect. Thats why its suddenly unable to find the compilers.

    That was when I realized I had 2 Dev-Cpp folders, the old one in C and the new one by 5.3.0.1 in Program Files x86.
