You need to install MinGW or Cygwin to get the compilers you need.

Here's how to install Cygwin: https://cygwin.com/install.html

Be sure to select gcc, g++, gdb, and make under the Devel(opment) category.

Did you already install the C/C++ Development Tool in Eclipse? Or did you install the "Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers"?

Why not Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows Desktop btw?

I will just use visual studio express because there are too many versions of eclipse and modifying cygwin is difficult

thanks
