I'm not even out of the gate.  Followed instructions at,

https://wiki.dlang.org/Latest_LDC_binaries_for_Windows

- Head over to the GitHub release and download the latest x64/x86 .7z artifact at the bottom.
- Extract it somewhere.
- Use the executables bin\ldc2.exe and/or bin\ldmd2.exe.


Downloaded and extracted on windows 10 at c:\ldc\bin\...

Created a tiny d program called GC.d in same directory.

PS C:\LDC\bin> ldmd2 GC.d
Error: cannot find source code for runtime library file 'object.d'
       ldc2 might not be correctly installed.
       Please check your ldc2.conf configuration file.
       Installation instructions can be found at http://wiki.dlang.org/LDC.
import path[0] = C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin\..\include\d\ldc
import path[1] = C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin\..\include\d

I've looked at
http://wiki.dlang.org/LDC
and
https://wiki.dlang.org/Building_and_hacking_LDC_on_Windows_using_MSVC
and don't seem to see a possible solution.  What am I doing wrong?

thanks.

it finds `include` folder next to `bin` one and fails. You should extract it too.

As I said on GitHub yesterday, you're better off with a normal release package from https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases.
Anyway, your import paths are clearly wrong (no C:\LDC in there). I guess you extracted an LDC archive into C:\D\dmd2\windows and have C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin in your PATH, so that ldmd2 ends up invoking C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin\ldc2.exe or something like that. I suggest running ldmd2 with `-v` to check the binary and config file paths. The output should look similar to:

binary    C:\LDC\ninja-ldc\bin\ldc2.exe
version   1.6.0git-366e2e4-dirty (DMD v2.076.1, LLVM 5.0.0git-64f4e71f1af)
config    C:\LDC\ninja-ldc\bin\ldc2.conf (x86_64-pc-windows-msvc)

Otherwise, adapting your PATH environment variable should definitely get you working.

PS => PowerShell => need to use `./ldmd2` to start the executable from the current directory, just like on POSIX.
