The problem you are reporting seems to me caused by the following:

  1. you are trying to compile C code and the source file has .cpp extension
  2. you are trying to compile C++ code and the source file has .c extension

In such situation Eclipse cannot recognize the proper compiler to use.

Try restart Eclipse first, in my case I change different Compiler setting of the project then it shows this message, after restart it works.

I was having this problem using Eclipse Neon on Kubuntu with a 16.04 kernel, I had to change my #include <stdlib.h> to #include <cstdlib> this made the std namespace "visible" to Eclipse and removed the error.

This worked for me on Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers Version: 2020-03 (4.15.0) Build id: 20200313-1211. Also, my code is cross-compiled.

  1. Create a new project making sure it's created as a cross-compiled solution. You have to add the /usr/bin directory that matches your cross-compiler location.
  2. Add the C and C++ headers for the cross-compiler in the Project Properties.
  3. For C: Project > Properties > C/C++ General > Paths and Symbols > Includes > GNU C. Add... -> The path to your /usr/include directory from your cross-compiler.
  4. For C++: Project > Properties > C/C++ General > Paths and Symbols > Includes > GNU C++. Add... -> The path to your /usr/include/c++/ directory from your cross-compiler.
  5. If you don't know your gcc version, type this in a console (make sure it's your cross gcc binary):

    gcc -v

  6. Modify the dialect for the cross-compilers (this was the trick).

  7. For C: Project > Properties > C/C++ Build > Settings > Tool Settings > Cross GCC Compiler > Dialect. Set to ISO C99 (-std=C99) or whatever fits your C files standard.
  8. For C++: Project > Properties > C/C++ Build > Settings > Tool Settings > Cross G++ Compiler > Dialect. Set to ISO C++14 (-std=c++14) or whatever fits your C++ files standard.
  9. If needed, re-index all your project by right-clicking the project > Index > Rebuild.

Install C++ SDK:

Help > Install New Software > Work with: path for your eclipse version > search for C++ and install C++ sdk development tools.

What allowed me to fix the problem was going to: Project -> Properties -> C/C++ General -> Preprocessor Include Paths, Macros, etc. -> Providers -> CDT GCC built-in compiler settings, enabling that and disabling the CDT Cross GCC Built-in Compiler Settings

The includes folder in the project is probably missing /usr/include/c++. Goto your project in project explorer, right click -> Properties -> C\C++ Build -> Environment -> add -> value= /usr/include/c++. Restart eclipse.

You can rewrite the code likes this:

#include<iostream>
#include<stdio.h>

using namespace std;

For MinGW this worked for me:

  • Right click project, select Properties
  • Go to C/C++ General - Paths and Symbols - Includes - GNU C++ - Include directories
  • Select Add...
  • Select Variables...
  • Select MINGW_HOME and click OK
  • Click Apply and OK

You should now see several MinGW paths in Includes in your project explorer.
The errors may not disappear instantly, you may need to refresh/build your project.


If you are using Cygwin, there could be an equivalent variable present.

I do not know whether you have solved this problem but I want to post my solution for those might ran into the same problem.

  1. First, make sure that you have the "Includes" folder in your Project Explorer. If you do not have it, go to second step. If you have it, go to third step.

  2. Second, Window -> Preferences-> C/C++- > Build >Environment: Create two environment variables:

    a) Name: C_INCLUDE_PATH Value: /usr/include

    b) Name: CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH Value: /usr/include/c++

Go to Cygwin/usr/include/, if you cannot find folder "c++", copy it from \cygwin\lib\gcc\i686-pc-cygwin\X.X.X\include and Then restart your Eclipse.

  1. Third, Right Click your project in Project Explorer -> Properties -> C/C++ General -> Paths and Symbols -> Includes -> Languages:GNU C++ If you can find some C++ folders in the "Include directories" then click Apply and OK. Change a bit your codes, and save it.

You will find there will be not symbol could not be resolved problems.

I documented my solution, hoping someone might get benefits.

Try out this step: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/636348/

Go to

Project -> Properties -> C/C++ General -> Preprocessor Include Paths, Macros, etc. -> Providers

  • Activate CDT GCC Built-in Compiler Settings
  • Deactivate Use global provider shared between projects
  • Add the command line argument -std=c++11.
