If somebody have working Windows build, could you please share it?

It would be nice to know if someone even managed to build Calypso on Windows yet :)

Hello Elie,

I did manage to build Calypso on Win7, and the resulting binary works to produce an obj file, but linking of a full executable fails :(

I am getting "file contains invalid .pdata contributions" when trying to link. Trass3r over on ldc's github page was getting this error at one point also, but I don't know what the solution was. It seems like this was back in Aug 2014 so I would have thought any changes needed were picked up by Calypso when you forked in Oct.

I would post an issue with ldc but Calypso isn't up to date, so it might not be really fair as the fix may be in the newest ldc. I can't see anything standing out in the commits for an issue like this, but I might just be missing it.


P.S. There is a small patch needed to compile on windows with VS2013. Things should still build fine on Linux with the patch. Here it is:
