MinGW 1.1 Bugfix Patch

Patching MinGW

MinGW 1.1 contains a few critical bugs which prevent GUF from working. However, I have put together a small package which will solve these problems. Download it at:


Instructions for applying the patch can be found in the package. Note that you will need the MinGW runtime source code to compile the fix. You may be better off simply downloading the complete GUF MinGW binary package from:


The bugs fixed by this patch are as follows:

  • Exceptions can now be thrown across DLL boundries.
  • windows.h is no longer included from stl_alloc.h, although stl_alloc.h is still thread-safe.
