mingw32-make.exe not found

My brand new CodeLite installation (including MinGW) on WIndows 10 complains that it cannot find mingw32-make.exe. I checked that it is not on my system at all, so it is no a PATH problem. There is a C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin\make.exe file though. Being new to CodeLite, I would prefer not to experiment and get a solution from you right away. Thanks!

You are mixing here two different environments:
MSYS and native **NO MSYS** MinGW

The make.exe that you are suggesting is usually used when working from inside an MSYS terminal (which emulates a bash shell)
mingw32-make is the one that should be used when installing MinGW compiler.

CodeLite does NOT install a compiler for your, but the process of adding and installing is simple:

Thanks for the quick reply.
Actually I did install MinGW using the file your link points to.
MinGW\bin directory contains the following MinGw*.exe files:
04-10-2013 20:20 52.224 mingw-get.exe
05-10-2013 18:17 1.821.710 mingw32-c++.exe
05-10-2013 18:17 1.819.150 mingw32-cc.exe
05-10-2013 18:17 1.821.710 mingw32-g++.exe
05-10-2013 18:17 1.819.150 mingw32-gcc-4.8.1.exe
05-10-2013 18:17 65.550 mingw32-gcc-ar.exe
05-10-2013 18:17 65.038 mingw32-gcc-nm.exe
05-10-2013 18:17 65.038 mingw32-gcc-ranlib.exe
05-10-2013 18:17 1.819.150 mingw32-gcc.exe
So it appears that includes compilers. There are 58 .exe files in total in this directory, none of them looking like some sort of MAKE, let alone the specific MinGW32-make.exe you say I need.
What am I doing wrong?
