  Tried to install LDC on Windows 7, but getting the below errors while compiling

NETFXSDKDir = C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Lib\10.0.16299.0\um\x86(System/User)
LDC_VSDIR = C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community(System)

Error:

LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'kernel32.lib'

Hi, LDC_VSDIR should be fine, but NETFXSDKDir may interfere as you're using the 64-bit linker (i.e., targeting Win64) and specify the 32-bit lib directory at the same time. So try with `-m32` or fixing/getting rid of NETFXSDKDir.
