I'd like to find a way to automatically install the dependencies for Geany (which has all its dependencies installed automatically on Ubuntu, when installed from the Ubuntu software center) Is it possible to do this on Windows as well?

This question sort of makes no sense for me: If its all automatically installed, what dependencies do you need? – Simon Sheehan Aug 17 '12 at 2:51
In my case, I want to be able to compile Java, C, Python, and C++ files from Geany. – Anderson Green Aug 17 '12 at 3:25
Also, I fixed the typo that led to this ambiguity. I hope the question makes more sense now. – Anderson Green Aug 17 '12 at 3:27
So... you want it to download and install MSVC for you? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Aug 17 '12 at 3:32
No, I'm not using Microsoft Visual C++. I'm using Geany, as stated in the title. – Anderson Green Aug 17 '12 at 3:36
