By "doesn't work" do you mean you get a command not found?

If that's the problem then your PATH is not set. You can do that either via the system variables (right click "my computer" and go into properties) or temporarily by opening up a DOS prompt:

SET PATH=c:\mingw\bin;%PATH%

Replace "c:\mingw" with whatever folder you installed Dev-C++ or MinGW. When in doubt, use Windows Explorer to inspect the folders by hand to find the gcc executable.
