I am using MinGW and eclipse for my IDE, should I be able to compile win32gui?  I have tried a couple of times but keep getting errors.  If you think I should be able to use only MinGW then I will try again and post my errors.

Thanks

Hi,

As far as I know, Eclipse is an IDE for java.

Anyway, you need MinGW and gcc 3.3+.
You can get them + an IDE from :

Eclipse also has a C\C++ environment that can use cygwin or MinGW.  When I tried to build win32gui I used MinGW 3.4.2 from the command line.  I would like to know if there is anything special in DevCPP that would not be in MinGW.

The IDE ;)

I assume it should work. But don't build win32gui from the command line. Use build_library.exe, in the root of where you unzipped the win32gui library.

Best,
John

I believe that's what I did.  I will try again and let you know the results.

C:/dev/MinGW/include
C:/dev/MinGW/include/c++/3.4.2
C:/dev/MinGW/include/c++/3.4.2/mingw32
C:/dev/MinGW/include/c++/3.4.2/backward

Here is the last part of the output:

nk.obj...

Libraries are found in the 'win32gui-lib/win32gui/lib' folder
Press any key to continue . . .

What else can I provide to be helpful?

Thanks.
What version are you building? As a side-note, I have tested the last version (v1.4.3) against gcc 3.3.1.

Please sent me all of the output to john at torjo dot com.

Best,
John
