I found this solution:

I created a resources.rc file with this content below and 
compiled with command: "windres resources.rc resource.res" and 
link to program with this command: "dmd source.d resource.res"

2 ICON icon.ico
     FILEVERSION    1,0,0,0
     BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
         BLOCK "040904b0"
             VALUE "CompanyName",        "ACME Inc.\0"
             VALUE "FileDescription",    "MyProg\0"
             VALUE "FileVersion",        "\0"
             VALUE "LegalCopyright",     "© 2013 ACME Inc. All 
Rights Reserved\0"
             VALUE "OriginalFilename",   "MyProg.exe\0"
             VALUE "ProductName",        "My Program\0"
             VALUE "ProductVersion",     "\0"
     BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
         VALUE "Translation", 0x409, 1200
