digitalmars.D - Trouble complinig DMD 2.070 on windows

I'm trying to compile a 64-bit DMD.exe on windows (as my project 
has enough CTFE and Template work that it bumps up against the 
4gb limit).

with the pre-DDMD setup I was just able to load the thing up in 
visual studio 2013 and build, but I've been having some 
difficulty with 2.070's projects. Namely, it seems that no matter 
what type of bulid I do, I get a bunch of errors in elfobj.c and 
one in filename.d

(If this is an actual issue with the code or projects I'll file a 
bug, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't just me doing something 
wrong first)

I'm building master with VS2015, but you need to make sure you manually update to the latest VisualD release (but that problem is nothing to do with the errors you show here). Consider updating to 2015? It is the first really significant improvement to MS's stack for like a decade (major C++/standards improvements). At this point, I think it is in all windows developers best interest to purge and forget the rancid memory of every prior VS release ;)

Just to be clear, all I have VS for is compiling DMD; I don't actually use it to develop. Should I still update?

There might be not enough manpower to keep the code at the 
bleeding edge of C++ technologies, so update is likely to be 
meaningless.
