But it is an expensive software. I can not buy the licensed version. I forgot to mention “SOME FREE VERSION IDE”

Visual Studio Express edition is free…download iso and install :slight_smile:

C-Free Standard with MinGW 4.7 compiler for C++ 11 Support.
Here’s the link :


Link 1 is IDE
Link 2 is CodeLite IDE with MinGW 4.7 Compiler with it. Install C-Free Standard and from Menu Bar choose build options to configure new MinGW compiler. Enjoy !!

use vim, you will be surprised.


@lallu1 If you are a college or a school student then you can get a licensed version of Visual Studio for free ( )
Although the express version is more than enough

I am using windows. Cant use vim.

My favorite is code::blocks. Simple, yet elegant.
