#147 Installation Tool missing components


The lastest MinGW Package Download and Installation Tool: mingw-get-inst-20120421.exe appears to be missing some components.
I installed, selecting C, C++ and the development tools.
1. It did not integrate with eclipse.
2. gcc.exe was missing.

I installed using the previous tool: mingw-get-inst-20111118.exe to a different directory from before. I then loaded Eclipse and it all worked perfectly.
I'm a releative newbie to Eclipse so I hope this is not a misunderstanding on my part.

    1) mingw-get-inst-RELEASEDATE.exe is nothing more than a wrapper to a more recent version of the command line mingw-get.
    2) Once installed using mingw-get-inst-RELEASEDATE.exe is meaningless. You should use ``mingw-get update && mingw-get upgrade PACKAGE'' where PACKAGE is the package to be upgraded such as gcc or mingw-get itself.
    3) We don't integrate anything with eclipse and do not support you in using it.

    Then this is a duplicate so I'm closing it.
