digitalmars.D - Shipping rdmd with 64-bit Windows

reply RazvanN <razvan.nitu1305 gmail.com> writes:
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: https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/blob/2ec2fd7814fdb46c617a7ac5bbe76dee0a610aec/.azure-pipelines/6-package.yml#L43-L45

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. [1] https://github.com/dlang/tools/pull/439
