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:
Moved to [[Latest LDC binaries for Windows]].
* Head over to the [https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/LDC-Win64-master GitHub release] and download the latest .7z artifact at the bottom.
* Extract it somewhere.
* 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. It's linked dynamically against the MS C runtime, so it requires the [https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145 2015 runtime].
* If you want to use it in combination with Visual Studio 2013, you'll have to remove the default switch <tt>-Llegacy_stdio_definitions.lib</tt> in the configuration file <tt>etc\ldc2.conf</tt>. But apparently there's still a zlib issue in the C parts of the runtimes preventing successful linking with the VS 2013 linker. So currently, you'll need to build LDC yourself if you want to use it with VS 2013.
