"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
The Netbeans C/C++ module requires a C compiler, C++ compiler, make utility, and gdb debugger.
gdb 6.8 MinGW GNU debugger
make 3.79.1 MSYS make utility
Note that MinGW make is not supported
6.Do not select MinGW make, as you need to use the make from MSYS instead, which is downloaded separately.
10.See the installation instructions for MSYS at the MinGW MSYS wiki. You only need to install the MSYS 1.0 files. You do not need to install the DTK or the core files mentioned in the wiki page.
11.For convenience, you can download from this direct link to MSYS-1.0.10.exe
12.Make sure you are using a Windows account with "computer administrator" privileges when you install MSYS. The NetBeans IDE might have issues when you try to build and run projects later if MSYS is installed under a limited user account.
13.Run the MSYS-1.0.10.exe installer and accept the defaults.
