Sorry for the following rant but I am frustrated by the poor quality of support for Windows 64 development.

Try http://rainers.github.io/visuald/visuald/StartPage.html.

By way of comparison, I can download other languages and run their installer. After that everything just works: linker included. Why do I have to install a MS toolchain just to get 64-bit linking for DMD?

What languages and what linkers are they using?

I like D a lot. I have been using it for a while. But I have always had trouble with Win64 development. I need that platform for my work. But I will have to dev on Linux again just for 64-bit support. And hope that this can finally get fixed. Although I am real close to just walking away on this one.

Thanks for the pointer. I took a look. I could be wrong but it seems it is geared toward using D in VS. This is a little different than my use-case. I use D with a text editor and the console. So I am just looking for a 64-bit linker. I was forced to install VS to get one since for some reason the 7A and 8.1 Windows SDK's did not install a complete 64-bit toolchain for me.

Yeah, I used the Windows D installer after the toolchain was in-place. So I figured the sc.ini should have been automatically set.

Your next post is more to the point of what I am trying to do. I'll try out a redux on the path I took to install to give more clarity. It'll take a while since I have to uninstall VS2015.

Appreciate the feedback.
