< li>Make sure there is no MinGW path left in PATH environment variable.
You can uninstall MSYS2 64bit from your computer by using the Add/Remove Programs feature in Windows Control Panel. On the Start menu (for Windows 8, right-click the lower-left corner of the screen), click Control Panel, and then under Programs do one of the following: Windows Vista/7/8/10: Click on uninstall program.
Step 1: Go to the MinGW website and click Download. The download will start in 5 seconds. Step 2: Double click the exe MinGW file, open it and click Install. It will automatically start downloading all setups for the MinGW.
Answer that you have MinGW installed. Enter c:/mingw as the path where MinGW is installed. It should confirm that you have make.exe installed, press any key to continue. Click Finish. You are finished with the installation.
What is MinGW? MinGW is a compiler system based on the GNU GCC and Binutils projects that compiles and links code to be run on Win32 (Windows) systems. It offers C, C++ and Fortran compilers and other related tools. ‘MinGW’ refers to the “Minimalist GNU for Windows” project.
MINGW refers to executable files compiled with the MINGW GCC compiler targeting the Win32 API. MSYS2 refers to executable files compiled by the MSYS2 GCC compiler using a POSIX emulation layer.
The default install path is C:\msys32 for a 32-bit install or C:\msys64 for a 64-bit install, but you can change this to whatever you like (but make sure there are no spaces in the pathnames). This path is called <msys2> in the instructions below.
MSYS2 is software distribution and a development platform for Windows. It provides a Unix-like environment, command-line interface, and software repository, making it easy to install, use, build, and port software on Windows.
Software Distribution and Build Platform for Windows
MSYS2 provides current native builds for GCC, mingw-w64, CPython, CMake, Meson, OpenSSL, FFmpeg, Rust , Ruby, just to to name a few.
In the command prompt window, type “gcc” and press Enter. If the output says something like “gcc: fatal error: no input files”, that’s good and you’ve passed the test.
Yes, but if you want it for Windows it’s more convenient to use an implementation like TDM’s.
