MinGW Developer Studio Question

Ok...  hopefully this will be my last question for the day!  I just installed MinGW Developer Studio.  When I try to "Build & Execute" my code, I get an error as the windows console opens...  it's a message box saying "Cannot Execute Program".  The code compiles fine.  When I run the .exe generated upon building manually, it works fine also.  Any ideas?

Thanks,
Tony

I assume there's a problem regarding where the IDE expects the executable to be located and where it actually resides. You could check with FileMon (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/filemon.shtml) where it tries to start the program from (this app has filter capabilities, use them or you will be drowned in information! :o)

I'll give that a shot when I get home (don't have admin priv at work).  Hopefully that'll fix my many many woes LOL!

Well, there also should be some settings about where it starts the exe from and where the linker is instructed to place it - you could start by comparing them :o)

I think I figured it out!  I have the project saved in "C:\Documents and settings\ etc etc".  When I try to run the file from the IDE it only recognizes "C:\documents" in the path.  Is there a way I can make it recognize the spaces in dir names or should I just create another dir for these projects?

Try to enclose the path in quotes (in the edit box), that should work.
