Latest LDC binaries for Windows
As of August 2015, LDC has got support for Windows CI (Continuous Integration) via AppVeyor. As convenient side effect, successful jobs publish the LDC installation directory (as compressed 7-Zip archive) as GitHub release artifact, downloadable for you guys and thus saving you the hassle of building LDC yourselves:
- Head over to the GitHub release and download the latest x64/x86 .7z artifact at the bottom.
- Extract it somewhere.
- Use the executables bin\ldc2.exe and/or bin\ldmd2.exe.
LDC is built with RelWithDebInfo CMake configuration, assertions enabled, with a pre-built LLVM 3.9.1 (Release CMake configuration, LLVM assertions enabled) and Visual Studio 2015. It ships with debug infos (bin\ldc2.pdb).
For linking, you'll need MS Visual C++ 2015, either by installing Visual Studio or the stand-alone Visual C++ Build Tools. The LDC executables are linked dynamically against the MS Visual C++ runtime, so at least an installed 2015 runtime is required.
