    MinGW is a port of gcc to Windows. Alternatively you can get the Visual Studio compilers and the SDK for free from MSDN; you can't get Visual Studio itself as that's a premium product. Visual Studio Express might be a possibility.

    Get something up to date though, don't rely on old outdated crap like TurboC or DevCpp - unless you've got an outdated crap PC that won't run the modern stuff.

    Is it possible to create C++ (on MinGW gcc compilers) applications without using any IDE i.e., through notepad? If it is then how to compile and run my cpp file?
    Thanks
