    This occurs no matter what project I attempt to compile. It even occurs if I do it by hand.

    c:\dev-cpp\bin\make.exe -f "Makefile.win" all
    c:\dev-cpp\bin\make.exe: Interrupt/Exception caught (code = 0xc00000fd, addr = 0

    by hand I get this error from make.exe:

    make.exe: *** No rule to make target main.cpp, needed by main.o. Stop.

    Post it to the forum before posting it to the tracker. No one is actively developing Dev-C++ , and I doubt that it will ever explicitly support Windows Vista x64. The best you can hope for if this is a genuine bug is a work-around solution.

    I suggest there are better alternatives to a creaking 5 year old unmaintained tool.

    I have the same problem (Windows 7 x64). It solved by running Dcpp as аdministrator.

    So which part of my post 2010-02-04 12:09 did you guys not understand?

    Post it to the forum http://sourceforge.net/projects/dev-cpp/forums/forum/48211

    You may get a solution on the forum, but the error is with make.exe not Dev-C++, so posting it as a Dev-C++ bug will achieve nothing.

    The problem appears to relate to the path for make... If parenthesis '( ' or ')' appear in the your path before the path to the make.exe file it will generate this error...

    If you don't have the path added the system will look through yur path anyway and generate the error... google without the dev-cpp part for more information...

    You probably need to include both Dev-Cpp and Mingw...
    My path now starts with: C:\Dev-Cpp\mingw32\bin;C:\Dev-Cpp\bin; and everything is working...
    If you also use CodeBlocks you may need to fix it too... Mike
