Using the MinGW installer

Note that the MinGW version number is not related to the actual compiler version. Downloading MinGW 4.1 will not provide gcc 4.1!

These are merely installer applications which will upon request download and decompress the actual packages needed. At the present time, it is still preferrable to download the packages by hand, as the installers are not production quality. Both MinGW-4.1.1 and MinGW-5.0.2 are to be considered "alpha".

GCC 3.4.5 manual install

This is the "candidate" release of MinGW, so it is not considered "stable" officially.
Personally, I have not had any kind of problem with this release.

Base system with C++

Optionally:

gdb debugger

Other developer tools

Ports of the most often used Unix utilities. Note that some tools in UnxUtils are quite a bit outdated, so make sure you do not overwrite already existing MinGW files with their UnxUtils counterparts:

GCC 3.4.4 manual install

Some people have reported various problems with gcc version 3.4.4, so it may be worth a consideration to use the either the 3.4.5 or 3.4.2 releases until a build from the 4.x branch is available.
Personally, I have not had any kind of problem with either 3.4.4 or 3.4.5.

Base system with C++

Optionally:

gdb debugger

Objective-C

Native Java (experimental)

Fortran-77

Ada


GCC 3.4.2 manual install

Installing MinGW can be quite intimidating the first time because it is not obvious what you have to do. Luckily, it is actually pretty simple.
To do a manual install, simply download the required files and extract them all into the same directory. For simplicity, I recommend C:\MinGW.
