C/C++ does not build with GCC and gives message "Unable to create process - no HostInfo available"

Mr Morgan

have versions 8.1 and 8.2 of NetBeans upon a Windows 10 PC. 8.1 will compile and run C/C++ programs perfectly but 8.2 will not and simply gives the really helpful message:

 

Unable to create process - no HostInfo available

 

The odd thing is that both versions of NetBeans are set to use the same versions of the GCC compiler and tools.

 

Version 8.1 displays the following:

 

C Compiler: gcc (GCC) 5.4.0

C++ Compiler: gcc (GCC) 5.4.0

Fortran Compiler: GNU Fortran (GCC) 5.4.0

Assembler: GNU assembler (GNU binutils) 7.10.1

Make Tool: GNU Make 4.2.1

Debugger: GNU gdb (GDB) (Cygwin 7.10.1-1) 7.10.1

QMake Tool: Too not found

CMake Tool: Too not found

 

Yet version 8.2 displays:

 

C Compiler: Unable to create process - no Hostinfo available

C++ Compiler:Unable to create process - no Hostinfo available

Fortran Compiler: Unable to create process - no Hostinfo available

Assembler: GNU Unable to create process - no Hostinfo available

Make Tool: Unable to create process - no Hostinfo available

Debugger: Unable to create process - no Hostinfo available

QMake Tool: Too not found

CMake Tool: Too not found

 

Can anyone suggest why this is?

 

I have tried uninstalling the C++ plugin in NetBeans 8.2 and reinstalling it but all to no avail. A post to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44616880/netbeans-c-c-does-not-build-with-gcc-and-gives-message-unable-to-create-proce has also not provided any advice.

This has been resolved by changing environment settings to include new
variables for TOOLS_PATH and UTILITIES_PATH in the Windows PATH. Both
variables are set to C:\Cygwin64\bin.

Did you click the get version info button or something like that on the options menu?

If that doesn't work try recreating the tool chain.
