mingw g++ gives warnings in wrong language (german instead of english)

My problem is the following: When I compile a C++ Project with eclipse (Juno, 64bit, Java 7u3) on my Windows 7 laptop, I get german errors/warnings. This results in warnings showing as errors in eclipse.

Windows (7, 64bit) is set to: Display Language: English Format: German (Switzerland) Location: Switzerland Language for non Unicode programs: English (Canada)

On my other Windows 7 (64bit) PC I have the exact same settings and don't have any problems.

I tried:

  • Adding -Duser.language=en to the end of my eclipse.ini file. Which did not work
  • Changing the Format to English. Which actually worked but is not really an option due to the wrong format in other places
  • Many different things I can't remember (e.g. Environment variables in eclipse, etc.) Again, nothing helped


I finally solved it :D I just added a new environment varibale. I still have no clue why it works on one computer (as on that one I have not set this variable) but at least it finally works on my laptop as well and is (I think) a good (the correct?) solution:

Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Environment Varibales... -> System variables -> New.. -> Variable: LC_ALL, Value: en_US.UTF-8

Now I have english warnings/errors when I compile and eclipse behaves as it should.
