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.

i did that and no change.

"'GCC' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or a batch file"

What folder is your path set to? It can't have any funny characters in it (so "Dev-C++" would preferably be "Dev-Cpp" or "DevCpp") ...
