I'm trying to run/build the vibe.d tutorial on Windows. When I run the following:

dub init tut -t vibe.d
cd tut
dub

I get this error: https://postimg.cc/gwTB6y0G

I tried adding

"subConfigurations": {"vibe-d": "win32"}

to my dub.json, but that didn't seem to change anything.

Such topics would probably do better in the "Learn" section.

Looks like an optlink issue. Have you tried building for x86_64 or with "--build=x86_mscoff" dub switch? I believe this skips the optlink and uses VC++ linker instead, which should work better.

Compile with -a=x8s_mscoff

Plenty of discussions about it.

-a=x86_mscoff

Sorry for the typo.

Any reason why it's not the default? I don't see any reasons for x86 (rather than x86_64) to be the default, given how many problems it causes. Honestly, even better, on 64bit OSes (99% of users?) x86_64 should be the default.

My understanding is, just someone is needed to create the pull request.
There were good reasons in the past to have x86, in the meantime a lot changed
and we should change to x86_64 and 64 bit dmd sooner than later.

my solution is:
dub -b=release

Do not know why it's working.
