digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 17355] New: Path to lib64 and $(DMDInstallDir) not correct


          Issue ID: 17355
           Summary: Path to lib64 and $(DMDInstallDir) not correct
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: visuald
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: thomas.hedstrom mail.com

After installing DMD 2.074.0 and Visual D 0.44.2 the DMD x64 builds cannot find
(LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'phobos64.lib')
Using VS2017 Community (Toolset 2017 and/or toolset 2015 tested thinking it was
a linker problem).

After some more testing it seems there are maybe two problems:
1. When adding and absolute path to "C:\D\dmd2\windows\lib64" in Visual D
global settings "Library path" it works. Missing library path to lib64 ?
2. But, trying relative path $(DMDInstallDir)windows\lib64 to conform with
other path settings, it does not work.

During compilation the $(DMDInstallDir) seems to be ".\", seems wrong.

VCTOOLSINSTALLDIR=P:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual
VSINSTALLDIR=P:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\
WindowsSdkDir=C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\

Note: Compilation from command line "dmd -m64" on the same source works
