  • Done. I think this might help you. If this method does not work, move on to the next Method.


[Note: Recommended for x86 bit users.]

In this method , I suggest you to download the best stable version of Dev C++ form here  ( wait for few seconds for the download to begin ).
  • And I personally recommend all of you this method for using of Dev C++ of this version.
  • After completion of download of Dev C++ ,  download the two important header files given below.



  • I asked to download these files, because these header files mostly fixes all the errors that persist along with Dev C++ on Windows 8/8.1 and even for Windows 10.
  • After downloading both the header files,  just paste them into the following destination folder.
    C:\Program Files\Dev-Cpp\MinGW64\x86_64-w64-mingw32\include
  • Now, Run your Dev-C++ on the compiler. Then, you can find that you can work with Dev C++ from now without any errors. This method mostly works for all.
  • And I’ve tested it for myself. You won’t get g++ exception during compilation anymore.
  • Still the problem exists, then I recommend using next method, which is quite simple when Compared to others.
