Subject: Dev-C getting started creating a windows gui application. Hi all, I just installed dev-cpp 4.9.8, and want to get started creating a windows application. I was able to generate teh initial c application file via the wizard, but now how do I add. It is a follow up course on our Qt 5 C GUI Development for Beginners course, so you should have completed that course or have similar experience from elsewhere. The course is packed with lots of tips and tricks, to help you master what it takes to build professional GUI applications using C and Qt. The lectures are carefully designed. This demo is for C beginners. It shows how one can use WxDev-C to build a simple GUI app. This IDE, written in Delphi is the right place for beginners. It isn't perfect and it allows you 'holes' and 'bugs' in your program.Thats why its good for beginners. VS2005 wouldnt compile most of the code, which Dev-C does. Information and Download HERE. SOME LINUX IDE's: -Code::Blocks.
When executing my console program, it closes automatically. How I can change this behavior?
You can use an input function at the end of your source, like the following example:
When I compile my dos program and execute it, Dev-C++ minimizes and then restore in a second but nothing appears
When creating a console application, be sure to uncheck “Do not create a console” in Project Options (when working with source files only uncheck “Create for win32” in Compiler Options).
After linking, I get the error “C:DEV-C++LIBlibmingw32.a(main.o)(.text+0x8e): undefined reference to `[email protected]'
You most probably haven’t declared any main() function in your program
When I launch Dev-C++ i get the message saying “WININET.DLL not found”
Install the missing DLL. You can find more information about this issue at this Microsoft support page
When I compile a file, I get a message saying 'could not find <filename>'
Check within Compiler Options if the directories settings are correct. For a default setup, you should have:
How do I enable Debugging mode?
Go to Compiler Options and click on the Linker sheet. Now check 'Generate debugging information'. Do a 'Rebuild All' and debugging should now be available
The EXE files created are huge. What can I do to reduce the size?
If you want to reduce your executable file size from 330Kb to 12Kb for example, go to Compiler Options, then click on the Linker page and uncheck 'Generate debug information'. This will remove debugging information (if you want to debug, uncheck it). You can also reduce even more by going to the Optimization page and checking 'Best optimization'.
Under Windows NT, every time i launch Dev-C++ i get the message “Failed to set data for”
The is because you are not in Administrator mode, and Dev-C++ tries to write to the registry. To get rid of the error message, log on as the Administrator, or uncheck the file association options in Environment options, Misc. Sheet.
When I try to compile I get: ld: cannot open crt2. o: No such file or directory. What can i do?
Go to Compiler options, and check if the Lib directory is correctly set to:
(for a default installation).
If this still doesn't work, try copying the file Libcrt2.o to your Dev-C++'s Bin directory.
How can I use the OpenGL library and others?
All the libraries that comes with hte installed Mingw release reside in the Lib directory. Powerdirector 8 digit serial key. They are all named in the following way: lib[name].a
To link a library with your project, just add in Project options, Further option files:
This is for including the libopengl32.a library. To add any other library, just follow the same syntax:
Type -l (L in lowercase) plus the base name of the library (filename without 'lib' and the '.a' extension)
When I compile a file containing references to Windows filename (like <Mydirmyfile.h>), I get an 'unrecognized escape sequence' message ?
The Mingw compiler understands paths in the Unix style (/mydir/myfile.h). Replace the in the filename by /
Is there any GUI library or packages available for Dev-C++?
A lot of different GUI libraries can be used with Dev-C++ and Mingw. Fore a few easy-to-install packages for Dev-C++, visit this page
Why can't I use conio.h functions like clrsrc()?
Because conio.h is not part of the C Standard Library. It is a Borland extension, and works only with Borland compilers (and perhaps some other commercial compilers). Dev-C++ uses GCC, the GNU Compiler Collection.
If you really can't live without them, you can use conio functions this way:
Include conio.h to your source, and add C:Dev-C++Libconio.o to 'Linker Options' in Project Options (where C:Dev-C++ is where you installed Dev-C++).
Please note that conio support is far from perfect. I only wrote it very quickly.
Gui With Dev C++ Code
Toolbar icons are not showing properly
On some screen exotic systems and resolutions, toolbar icons may show up incorrectly. Try changing your screen resolution, or disable toolbars from the View menu in Dev-C++
When attempting to create a setup program, i get the error 'File BinSetup.exe not found'
If you are willing to use the Setup Creator feature of Dev-C++ 4, you need to download and install this file

How to use assembly with Dev-C++?
The 'GNU as' assembler uses AT&T syntax (not Intel). Here's an example:
// 2 global variables
int AdrIO ;
static char ValIO ;
__asm('mov %dx, _AdrIO') ; // loading 16 bits register
__asm('mov %al, _ValIO') ; // loading 8 bits register
Don't forget the underscore _ before each global variable names !
__asm('mov %dx, %ax') ; // AX --> DX
How do I emulate the MS-DOS pause function?There are two ways. You can do it this way:
printf ('Press ENTER to continue.n');
getchar(); // wait for input
Or this way:
Gui With Dev C++ Download
system ('pause'); // execute MS-DOS' pause command
What about a Linux version?
There was a Linux version, but it has been abandoned, mainly because Dev-C++ is written in Delphi, but the first Linux version of Delphi (Kylix) wasn't as promising as required for Dev-C++ to be ported.
How can i provide a .def file for my DLL ?
Put in Project Options, Linker parameters: --def yourfile.def
I am having strange problems under Windows XP
Try to run Windows Update and make sure that you have the Program Compatability updates.
I am using Windows 98 and I cannot compile
Some users reported that you need to apply several patches to your system. Here is the list of them, if you can retrieve them from Microsoft website:
47569us.exe - labeled as Windows98SE shutdown
DX81eng.exe - latest version of DirectX (this is 11MB, and cannot be uninstalled without reinstalling Windows 98. You might want to try this one last in case the other above didn't work, as it should update many parts of the system).
