How to setup Eclipse C/C++ Development Tools on Windows 7?

Ok, so I download Eclipse C/C++ Development Tools and create a Hello World application and it didn’t run. It failed to compile with this error:

(Cannot run program “make”: Launching failed)

So obviously it is not download and extract and it works…so lets figure it out.

  1. First, install the other dependencies as described here:


  2. Add c:\mingw\bin to the path of your environment variables.
  3. Then download Eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org.

After doing it all right, I still go this error when I tried to compile the simple Hello World program.

undefined reference to `WinMain@16′

Yeah, I fixed this error by saving my C++ file, as found at this site: http://www.peetm.com/blog/?p=278
