C::B can't find the gcc compiler on your system.
What version of C::B did you use?
What installer did you used?
Witch OS do you use?

You have to tell C::B where it can find the executables for your compiler. This can be done in  "Settings->Compiler and debugger...->Global compiler settings->GNU GCC Compiler->Toolchain executables"

Either use the setup-package with mingw in the name or use the compiler from http://tdm-gcc.tdragon.net/ .
