This is from WinAPI, a very common one

It seems shipped version of kernel32.lib is missing that symbol. 
If you don't mind installing Windows SDK and build tools this is 
usually the way to go.

On the other hand if you are specifically looking to use minimal 
as possible setup you could also try LDC (assuming you've been 
using DMD)
