Hi,

I am using Dev C++ version 4.9.9.2 in windows environment, I have added "Open Source POSIX Threads for Win32" but when i am try to run program it shows Linking Error

  [Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__pthread_exit'
  [Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__pthread_create'
  [Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__pthread_join'

Please let me know how I resolve this issue ASAP .
