    Mostly fantastic - I use it to build my own projects with MinGW for Windows.

    The size of the project has increased dramatically. Dev C++ 5.5.3 (available from PortableFreeware.com) took 171 MB (including minGW). Eclipse CDT takes 219 MB (excluding minGW - I set the Eclipse CDT path to the Dev C++ 5.5.3 minGW). Dev C++ 5.6.2 takes 618 MB. Some of the explosion is due to including legacy minGW as well as minGW-32. However, in comparing some of the 5.5.3 to 5.6.2 files with the same name, they have grown by a factor of 8. I certainly give 5.6.2 Five stars for simplifying the installation process (which includes the tool chain). It would be nice to know if some of the growth in some of the files is merited or perhaps somebody missed an optimize switch in the compile/build.

    good ide for basic and/or educational projects, simple to use, freeware and under active development and improvement.

    I'm running into a few unusual problems loading up development software onto it. running off Windows 8.1, which I think could be causing problems. When I load a regular "hello world" test program off DevCPP, it'll compile fine, but when running the program the console window freezes and a "ConsolePauser.exe has stopped working" error message pops up. I checked around a bit online to see what the issue might be but support posts have no information related to the ConsolePauser crashing and it sounds like the version I downloaded is the correct one for Windows 8, so I'm kind of at a loss here. Is there something else I need to configure? Maybe permissions? What am I doing wrong here?

    When I open an old file using dev-C++5.5.3, it is no response, why?
