You have 2 options here:

1. Install MinGW and use it http://codelite.org/AddNewCompiler/AddNewCompiler
2. Install MinGW and keep using your VC++ compiler


The advantage of the first approach is that CodeLite is built to work with GNU/CLANG and less with MS Studio compilers
e.g. if you choose to use VC++, you won't be able to debug your code via CodeLite

Yeah it worked with MinGW compiler, i have some others questions:

The dll file was compiled as 64-bit, how I can change it to 32bit?
The file size Increase of 50 kbs to 2.6MB is this normal?

About visual c ++ i receive this can not include windows.h no such file ..

Thanks man :)

Under settings->build settings... advanced tab there is an entry for include path. Might try adding the path to windows.h there.

(unsure, usually gcc knows the relative path to it's standard headers, perhaps vc++ doesn't)

Visual uses some environments to set its search path (thanks to something like "%VS120COMNTOOLS%vsvars32.bat")
You have to call it before launching Codelite,
or add correct environment inside Codelite (Ctrl+Shift+V).
