Dev-C++ error

Recommended Posts

Using Dev-C++ version# 4.9.9.2 When I try to compile any of my programs, I get this error: *** Couldn't reserve space for cygwin's heap, Win32 error 487 Any help on this topic is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Annoyer

This error is easy to fix.

Switch to VisualC++ Express.

It's got a much better debugger, a much better compiler, people will stop telling you to switch, and it's even more free!

Well, I would like to but it can't compiple C code on it so I'm using Dev-C++.
If there is a way to use C on VC++ please tell me. Otherwise, my problem is the
same as my original problem.

Use a .c extension instead of .cpp.

Alternatively, under your project properties page, Select:


- Configuration Properties
- C/C++
- Advanced
| Compile As | Compile as C Code (/TC) v |

There is no file with a .c extension to choose from


There's this wonderful thing called "renaming your files" or "typing out the extension yourself". Both of these will work. This is very much by design.

and under Configuration Properties there is nothing which say C/C++.


It does if your project has any .c or .cpp files in it.
