Dev-C++ 5.5.2 released

Even more reported bugs have been fixed. The help files have been rewritten too.

Changes - Version 5.5.2 - 28 Oktober 2013
  • Rewritten the help files.
  • Fixed a bug in the shortcut editor window.
  • Fixed a bug when closing an editor.
  • Fixed a memory leak in the recent file list.
  • Switching editors is a bit faster now (the class browser is only redrawn once instead of twice).
  • Fixed a crash in code completion caused by using mouseover hints at the same time.
  • Fixed a timer leak (the "Not enough timers available" bug).
  • Tidied up the File Properties window.
  • Renamed the file renaming procedure (fixes the "Thread error 6" bug).
  • Fixed a bug in the new project window.
  • Fixed a bug in the short editor window.

  • The setup which includes MinGW32 4.7.2 can be downloaded here (25MB).
  • The setup which includes TDM-GCC x64 4.7.1 can be downloaded here (44MB).
  • The setup which does not include a compiler can be downloaded here (2MB).
  • The portable version which includes MinGW32 4.7.2 can be downloaded here (17MB).
  • The portable version which includes TDM-GCC x64 4.7.1 can be downloaded here (32MB).
  • The portable version which does not include a compiler can be downloaded here (2MB).
  • Separate compilers can be downloaded here.
  • Lastly, the source code can be found here (1MB).

Choosing between 32bit and 64bit
  • The 64bit compiler will fully work op 32bit systems.
  • The 64bit compiler can create 64bit and 32bit executables and DLLs.
  • The 64bit compiler currently provides much more headers and libraries.
  • The 32bit compiler can only create 32bit executables and DLLs.


  1. Hi,

    Really love the 5.5! The clickable includes and the single update msgbox are great.

    Is there a way to make Dev-C++ write and recognize files in UTF-8?

    All it does for now is show the Unicode multibyte characters as a sequence of ANSI characters ("é" = "é").

    If there is no way, do you plan on making it available in the future?


    1. Currently, it is not possible to read or write UTF-8 files using Dev-C++. Sorry about that.

      At the moment, there are no plans to support non-ANSI encodings.

      I created a few test builds that accept UCS2 a year back though, but editor responsiveness was sad at best.

  2. Hi all,

    Can you please tell me how to set the compiler (32 bit) so that it won't show the error message :

    c:\program files\dev-cpp\mingw64\x86_64-w64-mingw32\bin\ld.exe
    skipping incompatible C:\Program Files\Dev-Cpp\MinGW64\x86_64-w64-mingw32\lib\libmoldname.a when searching for -lmoldname

    Thanks !!

    1. Please read Help >> Help on Dev-C++ >> Frequently Asked Questions >> Compiler.

  3. Hi, do you know when C++14 will be on ODevC++? Thanks!

  4. Hi, if you'd be able to answer my question I'd be extremely appreciative, because I can't get anything to work properly at this point.

    I'm trying to create a simple header file in which I declare a class, without any definition. At first it told me "no such file or directory" in regards to iostream (which I called using "#include ," by the way). Now, the program is back to its original problematic form, with the new error: "undefined reference to 'WinMain'," which it claims is in function 'main,' despite that I have no main function and the entire project, thus far, consists only of a single header file in the form of

    class X
    //void function;
    //private variable;

    Of course, I can't implement the class, because it refuses to compile. I can't find a solution to this problem, so any help with the iostream or anything that might be relevant would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

  5. So all the point which as you mention i am totally agreed.
    Thanks for your kind information.
