As of August 2015, LDC has got support for Windows CI (Continuous Integration) via [https://ci.appveyor.com/project/kinke/ldc AppVeyor]. As convenient side effect, the debug job publishes the LDC installation directory (a compressed [http://www.7-zip.org/ 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 [https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/LDC-Win64-master GitHub release] and download the latest artifact at the bottom.
* Extract it somewhere. For it to work out-of-the-box, extract it to <tt>c:\projects\ldc-x64</tt>, otherwise you'll have to adapt the <tt>etc\ldc2.conf</tt> configuration file and replace the absolute paths to the LDC installation directory.
* LDC is built with <tt>RelWithDebInfo</tt> CMake configuration, assertions enabled, with a pre-built LLVM 3.7 (<tt>Release</tt> CMake configuration, LLVM assertions enabled) and Visual Studio 2015.

If you're using it in combination with an older Visual Studio, you'll have to remove the default switch <tt>-Llegacy_stdio_definitions.lib</tt> in the configuration file <tt>etc\ldc2.conf</tt>.
* It's safest to use LDC in an environment set up by MSVC, i.e., in a <tt>VS 20xx x64 Native Tools Command Prompt</tt>, for LDC to be able to use the MS linker.
