As of August 2015, LDC has got support for Windows CI (Continuous Integration) via AppVeyor. As convenient side effect, the debug job publishes the LDC installation directory (a 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 .7z artifact at the bottom.
  • Extract it somewhere.
  • LDC is built with RelWithDebInfo CMake configuration, assertions enabled, with a pre-built LLVM 3.7 (Release CMake configuration, LLVM assertions enabled) and Visual Studio 2015. It's linked dynamically against the MS C runtime, so it requires the 2015 runtime.
  • If you want to use it in combination with Visual Studio 2013, you'll need to build LDC yourself. Apparently there's still a zlib issue in the C parts of the stdlibs preventing successful linking with the VS 2013 libs.
