You probably know that you can now run a bash command line from Windows 10, and even more interestingly you can download all the ubuntu tools (14.04) such as g++.
You can also run these commands from a regular windows cmd.exe if you do the following:
bash -c "g++ --version" for example, gives the version number.
However, if I do the same as a build option (say, the compile option) I get "Process failed(The system cannot find the file specified)". Even if I use the absolute path, the Compiler line says
Is it bash it can't find or is it g++ ? The message in () may be the system message for the code returned from bash. Try running a bash builtin instead of g++ or try the full path to g++.
I don't know which startup files bash on windows reads, but is your path defined in the right one?
C:\Windows\System32\bash.exe -c "g++ --version" (in directory: C:\Users\bill)
with the same error message. PATH does have bash in it, it all works fine in cmd, just not here as an option.
For those that want to ask why the question, I'm trying to help students in a large C++ class. Some use windows.
What version of Geany?
You might try single or no quotes instead of double quotes around the bash -c argument.
