This what I've got :

C:\>gcc --version
'gcc' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

what I have to do now ?

It could also be a PATH issue. gcc.exe may exist somewhere but Windows can't find it. Do a file search through the computer (probably in "Program Files" somewhere) for the file gcc.exe and see if it's in some directory somewhere. It could be somewhere on your computer, but in the wrong place, or in the right place, but the installer didn't adjust the PATH correctly. If you find gcc.exe in a file search in some directory, try adding that directory to the PATH and retrying what mitrmkar suggested. When in doubt, uninstall everything and reinstall.
