I tried the Windows OS in my Rust project and encountered an error during the build process.
Here are some highlights from the job log:
error: linking with `C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\BuildTools\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.15.26726\bin\HostX64\x64\link.exe` failed: exit code: 1181 = note: LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'advapi32.lib' error: aborting due to previous error error: Could not compile `winapi`.
Here’s the link to the full job log:
The winapi crate is a dependency of the rand crate that I’m using in this project. The rand crate is pretty popular, so I expect a lot of Rust projects failing to build/test on Windows as well given this issue.
