Oh, I guess I remembered incorrectly. But I am positive it worked 
out of the box in linux though, using the default ldc2 that gets 
installed by apt-get. I tested that using another computer. But I 
wish it also worked out of the box in windows.

This is mainly for programming the EV3 lego mindstorm brick. 
Don't know if I can/want to build druntime now, I also don't have 
visual studio, etc.
