Development of a visual IDE for MinGW is active again thanks to Arthas.
Great software, thanks visual-mingw
Still a bit buggy, but then, it is classified as alpha. Here are some suggestions to get users quickly using Visual-MinGW The program could use an .ini file example from a working system so that users can configure it properly. Adding a projects folder parameter path where projects are stored would be a good idea. The sub-folders with the name of the project is then created and all project files and resources are stored within their name (project named) folder. (many mature Development environments do this do this). Including a sample hello world project would enable users to quickly test the installation to determine that it is working properly.
