Looks like you are mixing 2 seperate versions (I see 1.1.8 as binaries and 2.0.x in source code).

They are 2 different APIs. 1.1.8 connects to mysql using default connection, and 2.0.x connects using XPLUGIN (

They have nothing in common, so its better for you to decide what should you use (depending on your needs)

This is the link for the DevAPI (2.0.x connector)

And this is the tutorial for 1.x connector

Regarding the error, we don't officially support Windows + gcc, only Windows + Visual Studio, but looking at the error, looks like some gcc passed option doesn't work/exists when gcc is on windows... take a look of the make file to see if you detect some issue..

Should be something like:

# Generated by "Unix Makefiles" Generator, CMake Version 3.6

# compile CXX with /usr/lib64/ccache/g++
CXX_FLAGS = -std=c++11 -std=c++11 -Wall -g -fPIC


CXX_INCLUDES = -I/home/user/connector-cpp/cdk/include -I/home/user/connector-cpp/build/connector-cpp-Desktop-Debug/cdk/include
