Missing MinGW tools

To build MinGW-based applications VisualGDB requires the following MinGW components to be installed:

  • The MinGW compiler (C:\MinGW\bin\gcc.exe)
  • The MSys system (C:\MinGW\msys\1.0)

If you did not install MSys when installing MinGW, please restart the MinGW installer and ensure that "MSys base system" is selected.

Note: you do not need MinGW to build remote Linux or Embedded Applications. MinGW is only required if you want to build Win32 apps based on MinGW.
