, my favourite IDE for developing applications using GCC under Windows doesn't work on Vista either: If you choose to download and install the default windows package (Codeblocks RC2, it's old but the only package with installer and the most common used version because of this), the compiler won't find the necessary files to compile C and C++. And if you work around this, the next thing is the linker which doesn't work. Great, to together with Visual Studio 2003 not working initially
, that's now 100% of my C++ development tools not working in Vista, that's what Microsoft is calling backwards compatibility.
BTW: With a newer MinGW and one of the nightly builds of CodeBlocks, it will run and compile then at least.
