Hey all,
I have a source code of a program but it is written that it will only works in gc++ compiler. i tried to run it on visual C++ but it failed. So, can anyone suggest me compilers to use for that code.

I am using windows 7 x64 machine. I downloaded mingw but i want some GUI interface. so, would you think code::blocks works for it. Please give your suggestion.

I would first test if I can compile the source code with MinGW before looking for an IDE for MinGW.

The MinGW Wiki mentions Code::Blocks:

Just use MinGW with Code::Blocks and then whatever errors it gives out, try to fix them yourself.
