*make sure to use Windows Desktop version.

Was going to recommend CodeBlocks buts its not compatible for some reason. Oh well, Visual Studio is not bad by any means. ;)

Use MinGW.

I hope you downloaded the one with the compiler packed in. Makes it easier for a beginner.

If you didn't, just re-download and install this one: codeblocks-12.11mingw-setup.exe
