Hello, I'm trying to learn C++ (yay for ambition! :thumbsup:)
Anyway, I have downloaded the much-recommended Dev-C++, and found that it gives an error:
"g++: Cannot find "cpp". No such file or directory". Upon research, I discovered this is yet ANOTHER Vista compatibility issue. And no, Compatibility Mode for ANY previous Windows OS doesn't work.
Help?
Thanks!

*DOUBLE POST ALERT*
My best bet is probably going to be using a Linux Live CD for programming. I've come across the GCC compilers, so I'll give those a shot.

Or you could get Visual Studio Express. It is a free, slimmed down version of Visual Studio from Microsoft.

That WOULD have been a nice alternative, were it not for the fact my computer that I am trying to program on is not hooked up to the Internet. If it were, I probably would have started with Visual Basic.
The installer has to download crap from the net in the process xP.
I'm setting my system up for FreeSpire right now: hopefully I can get started.
