Setting up MinGW[edit | edit source]
1. Go to the getting started page at MinGW's home page: http://www.mingw.org/wiki/Getting_Started, where you will find a link to the latest automated MinGW installer from sourceforge.net (currently MinGW-5.1.4.exe). Download it.
2. Run the installation file and be sure to install MinGW in a directory with a path name without spaces.
3. Inside the MinGW directory that has just been created, there will be a bin folder. Copy the adress to that folder and add it to your system path.
