Alright so got a bit of an issue. I am attempting to install a C++ compiler, potentially something for Java as well, despite not really finding a compiler for Java right away. Well I installed a package for a C++ compiler, installed the package dependency and even installed MinGW, adding it to my PATH for windows 10.
Once that is all done, even on a simple Hello World program for C++ it kicks back saying something is missing or not set to the PATH. But I ensure you it is, without a doubt, set up to PATH. Normally I would just say I am doing something wrong. But I decided out of sheer curiosity, to install Atom on a school computer, in my CS lab. Installed the C++ compiler package (did not install MinGW as the dependency suggests) and hit compile and run. It ran, no issues. Now I imagine that is because the labs are already installed with C++ compilers with the PATH already setup for them in order to use the normal class IDE’s. But this begs the question what am I then doing wrong and how do I fix it.
Barring that is there anyone who can recommend a direct link to a package that allows for C++ compiling and potentially one for Java as well. Thank you ahead of time.
