I had an issue with the windows installer.
It didn't remember where my existing D installation was, and tried to

It should remember where I installed it last time and upgrade the existing

The Window installer here doesn't actually work because the URL
is wrong. You're just using your previous installation.


I'm having another trouble with the installer on Win8.1 + VS2013

The installer produces lines in sc.ini:
  WindowsSdkDir=C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\

and lower:
  ; Platform libraries (Windows SDK 8)
  LIB=%LIB%;"%WindowsSdkDir%\Lib\win8\um\x64"

WindowsSdkDir is correct, it seems to have found the proper folder for Win8.1, but the LIB path is wrong. That path is correct for "Windows Kits\8.0", but it's been moved under 8.1, the proper path for the 8.1 libs
is: "Windows Kits\8.1\Lib\winv6.3\um\x64"

Seems 'win8' becomes 'winv6.3' under 8.1 for some reason...

Looks like Rainer already took care of this on master:

I'll get Andrew to merge it into 2.065.
