Beginner question regarding Windows 10 setup of ldc2 after downloading ldc2-1.16.0-windows-x64.7z
August 17
Stupid question here.  I'm using Windows 10. I don't believe there is a .msi installer for ldc2 on Windows.

So I've downloaded ldc2-1.16.0-windows-x64.7z to my C:\Users\me\Downloads folder and extracted it. So I see the bin, etc, import, and lib directories.

But now what?  Should I move the binaries somewhere? The .dll libraries somewhere else?
Or should I keep the entire structure as is, but move the whole thing somewhere?  Should I have extracted the 7 zip file somewhere else than my download folder?

Like dmd, ldc's directory structure in the compressed archive is good to go.
Extract into a directory and add it to your PATH variable.

For example here is my directory structure for both:

C:\development\D\dmd_2.087.0\windows\bin\dmd.exe
C:\development\D\ldc2-1.16.0-windows-multilib\bin\ldc2.exe
