Re: gcc (as.exe) install error


The dialog regarding your problems with GCC and / or "as" (or whatever the real problem ultimately turns out to be) should take place in public.

I'm not in front of the machine, but for the time being I'll add this:

When I copy that path and paste it in on the command line, it runs
just fine (well, as fine as something that expects something on STDIN
can run). I can add "--help" and it displays the help.

I've done a complete uninstall, followed by a reboot and a complete
install (by selecting "uninstall" and then "install" at the root of
the software tree) on that machine, and the same thing happens.

I'll check the version that got reinstalled Mon morning. Thanks for
the help so far. The community rocks.
