Hi guys! Actually this doesn't happen only with dev-cpp but to mingw itself. I'm just wondering since in my machine which has 512MB of RAM and another which has 192MB this doesn't happen. However, here in my office machine which has a 2GB RAM, the compiler would start then hang for the rest of its life. This also happened before I upgraded to 2GB, before I only had 1GB. I already formatted the PC and reinstalled Dev-Cpp(even downloaded another one). I have lots of other IDE's here and this only happens with dev-cpp so far..

What phase of the build is it hanging on? Try to run your build manually from the command line and see what happens (g++, etc.) Also, check if the process is eating up all the memory/CPU, or if it's just sitting there. In Windows, looking at it on task manager might be all you need to do. In Linux, top, ps and strace (and a few others) are your friends.

Also, you mentioned this is your work computer. Is it possible that they just block some things from running?

Dev-C++ is a dead project.

Use visual studio express.

If you need to compile code with alot of unix type calls use code blocks.
