[RESOLVED] MSYS2 Question
« on: September 06, 2022, 01:41:22 am »
Can someone suggest why C:\msys64\mingw32\bin is empty, while C:\msys64\mingw64\bin is full of toolchain executables? The package mingw-w64-x86_64-toolchain was installed.

Use the MSYS2 search function page below to lookup the package and it will have the list of other packages it includes and also a list of files if the package includes any. You need to lookup the included packages to find the file they include until you get the full list.

As the package name implies, it is the 64-bit package so it is not surprising that that the 32-bit tools are not installed.

If you want the 32-bit package, get mingw-w64-i686-toolchain: https://packages.msys2.org/group/mingw-w64-i686-toolchain
