I'm trying to fix this issue [1]. Looking at the installer code [2][3] it seems that the usually shipped tools (rdmd, dustmite, ddemangle) are disabled for windows 64-bit. Looking at the tools repo [4], it seems that there is a win32.mak, but a win64.mak is missing. Is there anything preventing the building of tools on 64-bit Windows?

Cheers,
RazvanN

LDC builds and includes them on Win64 - manually though, but it's trivial:

I wanted to make sure that there weren't any other showstoppers for building the tools on windows 64 bit. Thanks kinke. I already created a PR to fix this in the tools repo [1]. After it gets merged, I will also update the installer to automatically build them.
