NetBeans 6.9 - compiling C/C++ Windows

I just installed the new NetBeans 6.9.1 and tried to compile the examples that came with it.

I got a funny dialog pop-up (missing make).

To found make.exe on my windows computer and put in the path, but i was still getting error:
make[2]: mkdir: Command not found

Then i installed MinGW as recommended and included the MSYS option with it.

And was still getting the error and finally changed the PATH variable. Added path to C:\MinGW\bin
first before anything else.

run NetBeans again and it worked !!!!!
