I've been trying to get CLion to run for the last 3 hours. On Windows 7 x64.
Installed MinGW, realized there was a 64 bit version, uninstalled it, deleted directory.
Installed the newest version of MinGW w64, realized CLion didn't support it, uninstalled it, deleted directory.
Installed MinGW w64 version 4.9.3, CLion recognized it as version 5.0, but said that it only supports 3.x-4.x .
Created a fake "_mingw.h" file in the directory to spoof the version, CLion recognized it as 4.9.3, but said it only supports up to 3.x .
But here it says that CLion supports up to 5.3:
Look JetBrains, I'm really trying here. CLion looks nice, supposedly has nice features, but there's a slight problem when you can't even get it to choose a compiler.
I guess I'm going to use CodeBlocks then.
