no other mingw, no cygwin
(this is a fresh installed harddisk with nothing but winXP + drivers)

install: /mingw/lib/gcc/mingw32/3.4.5/
programs: =../libexec/gcc/mingw32/3.4.5/;../libexec/gcc/;/mingw/libexec/gcc/ming
libraries: =C:/MinGWmingw32/3.4.5/;C:/MinGW;/mingw/lib/gcc/mingw32/3.4.5/;/usr/l

"Settings" -> "Compiler and Debugger"

"Compiler Settings"
Tab "Other Options" add "-v"

Cut and Paste your re-build [CTRL][F11] of your Test GUI Project in a message, below is what I got.

Nevermind, I got it to work woooohooo

I went for a rather drastic method of reinstallation, canīt say which of the steps actually gave the success
Re-downloaded all the latest drivers for my system (even though I had done that just a week ago or so)
Re-formatted my HDD, created just ONE partition C:\ and installed a fresh WinXP
Installed XP drivers
Re-downloaded your whole list from above and re-installed everything
After I had copied the wxmsw26u_gcc_cb.dll and mingwm10.dll into the C::B folder Iīve started it, created a new test and (hooray) it WORKS

Donīt ask me how, or what I did different in this installation, Iīm just glad I got it working (saved your instructions from above for next time)
Many many thanks for your help and patience, I owe you one

Shall I add one good hint for you?
Last night while messing around, I had found a posting at

After I had C::B working Iīve started all over, re-formatted the HDD, re-installed everything again, only this time Iīve created a 2nd partition X:\, and installed MinGW + C::B there, made the neccessary adjustments (took me a while to find them all)
Then I took out the HDD, plugged in another (empty HDD) and installed Vista on it (only thing I made sure of, there is no drive letter X:\ on the Vista drive)
After Vista was up and running (Iīve made sure Iīm using only hardware supported by Vista), I plugged the first HDD back in, set it in BIOS as 2nd drive and booted Vista
In addition with the 3 fixes I found in that posting, C::B runs perfectly smooth under Vista (at least with my miniature scripts)

if you were missing stdarg.h and string.h I'm guessing you missed one of the mingw packages, then when you went through his list the second time you downloaded them all properly.
