lldb Windows errors with clang 10


I have clang 10.0.0 for Windows installed from here

I also used the community VS installer to install 3 components that I understood were needed for clang 10:

  • C++ 2019 Redistributable Update
  • MSVC v142 - VS 2019 C++ x64/x86 build tools (v14.26)
  • Windows 10 SDK (10.0.18362.0)

clang itself works ok - I can compile, link with -fuse-ld=lld, run some code with concepts, std::span, looks good.

When I run lldb.exe, I get:

..python36.dll was not found..

If I put python36.dll on the path, I then get:

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)..

I'm learning C++, wanted to start using a debugger but I'm getting stuck here.

Do I need to install the entire Python 3.6 for this to work? (I have 3.8 already installed)
