Re: Best FREE C compiler

Create a Win32 console application, chose "empty project" and then progam in C style. You can always program in C with a C++ compiler. Even though your files are *.cpp it's ok.

If you want to use Win32 API (and programming in C...) you have to configure VC++ express in the right way. Take a look here:

Re: Best FREE C compiler

you can use codeblocks ide its free
and add any of the multitude of free c and c++ compiler
provided it support it

look on there site www.codeblocks.org and visit there forum for a nightly build
as there main build is old
its easy to use and works perfectly well for most stuff
ive used it for sdcc and visual c++ free compilers
intel compilers and mingw

all the stuff ive built in them like comvdd etc works well

Re: Best FREE C compiler

I would like to suggest you the usage of C/C++ compilers from Borland. They use to be better than the MS ones.


Best regards

Re: Best FREE C compiler

Please take no offence, but why on Earth do you want to put yourself to the torture of Windows XP programming in C ?!?!?!
If this is for a real project with complex data and user interfacing you are really in!
