digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 15119] New: LDC version of installer


          Issue ID: 15119
           Summary: LDC version of installer
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: installer
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: turkeyman gmail.com

The DMD installer works well, in particular, there is hard work involved in
wrangling visual studio environment paths.

LDC also depends on the VS ecosystem, but it's just a zip file...

It would be great if the DMD installer could be rebranded to also work with
I wonder if ldc2.conf should be auto-configured in the same way as sc.ini?

Ideally, the installer, having noted where the user installed, would allow for
VisualD to auto-magically find the user's LDC instance, and also 'just work'
out of the box.
