Clang++ can't seem to build a simple hello world program on windows.

e\c++ hello.cpp
In file included from hello.cpp:2:

Am I doing something wrong?

The assertion is unfortunate, but the basic problem is that Clang can’t find all of the mingw headers. Look at where <bits/c++config.h> resides, and make sure to add an -I for that location to your command line.
