Uninstall the old version of MinGW
- Uninstall MinGW - This should be possible with Start/Programs?/MinGW/Uninstall (or similar)
- The uninstaller of MinGW often doesn't remove all files. Delete the whole MinGW directory manually.
Install the new version of MinGW
- Install the latest version of MinGW:
- Download and execute the latest version of the MinGW installer
- Chose "Download latest repository catalogues"
- Chose an install path, default is c:\mingw but every other path without whitespaces works
- Select "C Compiler" and "C++ Compiler"
- Wait until the installer downloaded and installed all packages
- If you installed MinGW to the same directory as before, you can skip this step. Otherwise you have to tell MSYS about the new path:
- Open the file c:\<msys-install-path>\etc\fstab with a text-editor (WordPad?, Notepad).
- Change the path to your MinGW installation. Default is c:/mingw /mingw
- Open MSYS and check if the installation worked:
You should get something similar to "gcc.exe (GCC) 4.5.x". If you get "sh: gcc: command not found", make sure you installed MinGW correctly and configured MSYS accordingly (see the step above).
Update the dependencies
- Delete the old dependency directory (c:\<msys-homedir>\dependencies)
- Download the latest dependency package: Download. Extract the archive into c:\<msys-homedir>\
- Recompile Orxonox. If you experience problems, ask in the forum.
