Hello, George

Well after my post I got the compiler working by 'cherry picking' working binaries manually. Some minor problems occured like some missing windows.h header macros. Also after my setup the compiler is portable: I can copy it to USB stick or anywhere I want and it just works. Adding compiler /bin to path env manually is bit tedious task to do. The Installer should do this automatically (I understand it is not easy to implement and the installer is still beta).

I'm testing new features I hit this next problem: LTO optimization is fails: "lto-wrapper: CreateProcess: No such file or directory
y:/work/mingw/bin/../lib/gcc/mingw32/4.7.2/../../../../mingw32/bin/ld.exe: lto-wrapper failed" if I specify -flto=4 when compiling and linking. Using just "-flto" works
 fine tough.

The current catalogue works for me. I now have gcc 4.8.1-4 and mingw-get
0.6.2-beta-20131004-1, and I can compile C and C++. You might want to
update your catalogue. You can do so in the GUI (Installation => Update
Catalogue) or at the command line (mingw-get update).

Do not copy dlls there! I would undo that and delete the extra copies of
those dlls. (When mingw-get upgrades my dlls, I would rather not keep
any stale copies.) In my computer, the only dll in
C:\MinGW\libexec\gcc\mingw32\4.8.1 is liblto_plugin-0.dll (and

To use your dlls, you need to set your PATH. In cmd.exe, you can enter a
command like

C:\>path %PATH%;C:\MinGW\bin

For a more permanent way to set PATH, look at
