Access denied error with gcc or g++ for C++ in Windows Command prompt using Cygwin?

Access denied error with gcc or g++ for C++ in Windows Command prompt using Cygwin?

If you get a ‘access denied’ while running gcc in Windows Command prompt, you need to understand this is expected. It should run no problems in your Cygwin Terminal with just a plain gcc.

In a Windows Command Prompt, you need to run either g++-3 or g++-4

Why Cygwin is better than MinGW for WIndows if you need Unix or Linux like tools including gcc c++ compiler

I have investigated this as I am coming close to getting something running for an high frequency trading environment. It seems with what I will propose, it can be cross compiled for multiple operating systems including Linux, Windows, Mac OSX, etc.

For Windows and how I can develop the supporting technology Windows tool, I am investigating which UNIX like Windows environment to go with. Cygwin or MinGW. If you got this link:

It seems there is a preference to Cygwin which I agree with. MinGW was just a bitch to set up with all the extra Linux tools you don’t get with. Also, most banking I worked with use Cygwin as well. Good enough for me.

As for the tools, I am looking at gcc as my primary tool I need for what operating system.
