not an internal or external command)

I set the Systex to C language in VIM editor. How to set the compiler
for C in VIM

You don't compile programs with Vim. Vim invokes a compiler you
already have installed on your system.

Because you have no program called "make" installed on your system.
(or, more technically, at least not accessible in any directory on
your PATH.) Probably no compiler either. There are numerous free C
compilers available for Windows; Google can tell you all about them.
When you do that, there are forums where you can discuss Vim and
issues relating to configuring it to do what you want. This is not
such a forum.
