    MinGW-w64 download delivers strange material

    I have a new win11 laptop and want to install the latest version of mingw-w64
    for my programming adventures.
    I use g++ in the mingw thing to compile my C++project in Eclipse IDE.
    I've been doing it this way for years.
    Searching for the mingw-w64 'xyz-install.exe' doesn't work.
    Instead, I land in github with a list of i686-.......posix/win32/dwarf/msvcrt/ucrt files.

    1. Which of these 8 i686/x86 files do I need to download?

    I downloaded one and it looks like an incomplete setup. Instead of g++.exe under the bin
    directory, there is just gbd-add-index containing either makefile code or cmd code.

    Gibberish to me.

    2. Another download ,(mingw-w64-v8.00), gives me things like makefile.am makefile.in configure configure.ac alocal.m4 ......and much more. What am I supposed to do with this?

    I need a bin folder with g++.exe.

    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.

    That second one just might do it for me.

    Problem Solved : the MinGW installed was a very old version.
    And using a simple copy of the old vQt folder was sufficient.
