'Building with Visual Studio'
From here: https://wiki.dlang.org/Building_under_Windows
I started with clean install of Windows 10 and clean install of
VS2017 Enterprise (the same version used in the instructions on
Downloaded and installed Visual D as it states.
All is fine with Visual Studio. Can build D projects, compile and
ok. Visual D integration with VS2017 seems fine.
Proceed to next instructions:
So I have all the source in the directory as per the instructions
I open a cmd prompt:
call "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual
(Ok, that worked fine)
set VCDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual
(everything fine so far)
make -f win64.mak -j4 "VCDIR=%VCDIR%"
Command error: undefined switch '-j4'
(ok, first problem has appeared)
(let's try without the -j4 then)
make -f win64.mak "VCDIR=%VCDIR%"
Error: don't know how to make 'Files'
(great. another error)
there is no make on my system?? instructions have not factored
that in yet??
