This is with GCC.

I haven’t gotten it to work with Clang and libobjc2 on Windows yet (I don’t think anyone has). See my other thread for details.

Are you building libobjc2/clang or gcc?

Hi Daniel,


This should work as we’re building Base with MSYS2 successfully on Travis CI.


Maybe you installed some extra package that is causing this? I’d try with a fresh MSYS2 installation and installing just the packages we install on CI:


Also make sure you’re building from a MinGW shell, not MSYS2.
