DevC++ Installation and Usage Guidelines

Dear students,

You can download the DevC++ tool from the Downloads page of CS201 over the VU-LMS. There you will find three different versions of DevC++ such as:

Version 5.9
Typically you should go for the version if 32-bit OS is installed on your system and install the version if your OS is 64-bit. The version 5.9 is the latest version and is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Therefore most recommended version is 5.9.

Following are the URLs where you can download the setups for these versions:
