I've been doing a little research online about the best way to get C::B running with gcc 4.7, but I'm feeling more than a little overwhelmed at the moment. I think I've found a few good resources, but was hoping that someone here could either confirm these steps or offer an alternative.
The problem with the first link is that, besides gcc and boost, it looks like there's a lot of bloat in the download. A LOT
The issue with the second link is that it pertains to Windows 7 installation. IDK if the same steps would apply to WinXP 32bit (what I have)
If anyone has completed this task before or has an alternative suggestion, they would be greatly appreciated!!
You're right. My problem was two-fold.
Firstly, I was overthinking the issue, and second, in my previous attempts to install the new version, I kept trying to set CB to look in the ...\MinGW\bin directory as if it were a PATH variable.
