I am enrolled in a C++ course at my college and the instructors have requested that all assignments be able to compile on GCC 4.8.4.

To do this, I have chosen to use MinGW on my Windows 10 machine through Eclipse. However, when I open the “Versions” tab in the MinGW Installation Manager, I am unable to see any data sheets and I get a message stating that a compiler for this data category has not been implemented yet.

I attempted to remove the current version of GCC on my Ubuntu command-line and install the required version, but it did not work.

Do you have any suggestions or ideas?

Would G++ be a good option?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
