    It appears to me that Windows doesn't know how to find your compiler. You need to add the directory path for the Fortran compiler to the path environment variable. Here's a link that might help if you don't know how to do this: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm.

    Hi Mark44
    thanks for reply.

    But the variable you are talking about is already set (refer the screenshot).

    i think its something else.Can you suggest some other method of running fortran with good text editor as i am newbie...offcourse a freeone :P

    I'm not convinced that you have the path variable set correctly. The screen shot was pretty small, so was hard to read. The 2nd item looks like C:\gcc\libexec\gcc\686pc...

    Does this actually refer to a directory on your computer? The two gcc parts in the path seem odd to me.

    Thanks MARK44

    I somehow got it working by following a video on YOUTUBE
