Thanks Pelle for continuously working on this!

Edit: Well, Stockholm, we have a problem!  :-\

When trying to install the RC4 64bit download on my laptop, just as I have done with the previous versions, the install process will hang at installing/copying pocrt.dll.
Can't close the window, [cancel] button doesn't work anyway, have to end the setup process through the task manager.

Host is Windows 8.1 64bit, run as administrator on an account that has administrator right to begin with.

Perhaps you had an open program which uses pocrt.dll (a runtime dll of Pelles C). Then it could not be overwritten.

Nope, happened after a clean reboot.
But it turned out to be an issue with Avast! anti-virus, though it would just hang, not result in the usual pop-up message with a false alarm by checking against the RTL instead of a real virus/malware...
Disabled Avast for 10 inutes and install went through fine, will hopefully have some time this evening to play with it...

Makes you wonder which is worst - viruses or anti-virus programs...

3rd party anti-virus on Windows 8(.1)...

I really love those easy and simple days of Windows XP right about now... :'(

I had more issues with Windows 8 on my new laptop for the last 3 months that I have it now than I had with Windows 7 and Windows XP in the last 10 years on all of my PCs combined... >:(

Currently, on Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, compiling a file using
Code: [Select]
cc main.c throws many "unresolved external symbol" errors because the default target is 32-bit while the default library directory is the 64-bit one. See this thread (http://forum.pellesc.de/index.php?topic=5151.msg19837) for more details, as this issue was also present in Pelles C 7.00.

Additionally, I think it would be nice if the cc application had the same switches (aliases?) as gcc so that code can be compiled using the same commands across gcc, clang, Pelles C, etc.
