Checking path information

Path information tells the compiler where to look for the files it needs to compile your source code. You must be sure that the compiler's path information accurately reflects the location not only of the Mcw.exe program, but also of the other files that accompanied Mcw.exe in the download.

To check the path information, follow these steps:

1. Use the Find function on your Windows Start menu to locate the Mcw.exe file

2. Make sure the directory containing Mcw.exe also contains the Include folder and the ccl.lib file.

2. Right click Mcw.exe, then click Properties.

3.Click the General tab.

4. Note the location information.

5. In the Miracle C menu bar, click Options, then click Compiler.

6. Look at the Base path information. It should be identical to the location information you saw in Windows Explorer. If it isn't, change it.

7. The Include path information should be identical to the Base path information, but with \include added.

8. Click OK.

9. In the Miracle C menu bar, click Options, then Linker.

10. The Library path information. It should be identical to the Base path information.
