Download the dmc.zip package, too (http://digitalmars.com/d/download.html)

Hi pal,

 i also downloaded the dmc.zip. I extracted it and found link.exe there. I tried
to copy it on the dmd bin directory but i got a lots of error.

you should extract whole dmc archive, also check dmd configuration.

I'm not sure why it wouldn't work, but typically that stuff goes into dm/bin, while the D stuff goes into dmd/bin. Maybe the errors you got were about copying over existing files? --bb

The configuration is in dmd\bin\sc.ini. There you can see it says: LINKCMD=% P%\..\..\dm\bin\link.exe Which means it expects link .exe to be in a dm\bin directory that's parallel to the dmd\bin directory. So yeh, it ain't gonna work copying link.exe to the dmd\bin directory. --bb
