+1. Check out LLVM and LLD from the LLVM SVN repository (or Git mirror),

+#. open LLVM.sln with Visual Studio, and

+Alternatively, you can use msbuild if you don't like to work in an IDE::

+MSBuild.exe had been shipped as a component of the .NET framework, but since
+2013 it's part of Visual Studio. You can find it at "C:\\Program Files
