I count 62 `pragma(lib, ...)` in druntime, incl. advapi32 [1]. Missing ones can be seen as a bug, or at the very least an unnecessary inconvenience.

So yes and no. I agree they should be there, but they are unlikely to actually work because the druntime modules are not in the active build and thus their pragmas don't apply.

Yeah, I was surprised to learn that they are there. I've had to link with certain system libs on Windows as recently as a few months ago and had simply assumed the pragmas weren't there.

It worked, thanks a lot.

I see, thank you for explaining that.
