I recently downloaded dev C++ compiler, but found it to be worthless, as it doesn't compile advanced programs for some reason. It's a beginners compiler, and my friend did not recommend it for me. (even though I am a beginner).
btw: None of the other downloads worked either, so I'm pretty sure the problem is that I must register in order for the downloads to work.
