I went through the google kdb group and and found out that i sh= ould let kdb+ find the windows: snappy.dll, but the instruction only shows = how to configure the installation of snappy on osx by using macports. Anyone could help me on this? I downloaded the snappy zip form google.githu= but found no dll within the zip file.
