deploying to github releases from travisci-windows

this post will be kind of short but basicly the trick to getting it to work requires travis.yml file that looks like

language: cpp
notifications:
  email: false
matrix:
  include:
  - os: osx
    osx_image: xcode11.3

      file: "C:/build-windows.zip"

      on:
        repo: <repo Name here>

branches:
  except:
  - legacy
  - experimental
  - /^untagged/

The magic here involves making sure to place the build file for windows in a path you can refrence. Thats why i placed it in the C:/ path
