MinGW Toolchain is Missing

As part of my system rebuild I installed the latest Eclipse and CDT and tried to create a new C++ project. Even though I had MinGW set up and working, the MinGW toolchain was missing from Eclipse’s list of available toolchains.

It seems I needed to add the MINGW_HOME environment variable pointing to the location where MinGW is installed (e.g. C:MinGW) so CDT could find it.
