Any MS libs that can be bundled "legally"?

That's the problem. If there were, they'd be bundled with the LDC Windows packages, so that LDC on Windows wouldn't require a Visual C++ installation anymore and just work out of the box. To avoid confusion: we're talking about the static and import .lib files of the Visual C++ runtime & Windows SDK, not about the redistributable DLLs.

The libs on DropBox are from Visual Studio 2015 Update 3, while the LDC 1.8 druntime/Phobos libs have been compiled with latest VS 2017, so this divergence could become problematic at some point.

Hmm how hard would it be to use the MinGW libraries like DMD is doing as a fallback since 2.079?


Rainer's excellent work on this is mostly found in dlang/installer:


(mingw and lld are separate branches, s.t. they aren't built on every AppVeyor run)
