Re: Build on msys2 fails : libngspice-x.dll not found in any executable path
Mmm, it sound more like you are not updating msys2 properly...
But please attach pkglist_with_s.txt.
pacman -Qs > pkglist_with_s.txt
It looks like msys2 also recommends an update script (update-core) to
workaround the issues with the runtime.  Especially note:
"Run update-core. If one of the packages is updated during script run
you MUST restart MSYS2"
After this, please try a clean (read new) build dir and run cmake afresh.
