Many Thanks all for the responses.

Reminder of my requirements:
- I am using d2sqlite3 and in a Windows 64 D program
- Want to create a single exe file that I can distribute to other 
people without the need to distribute the related DLL's

Progress to date:

- I found a static compiled version of sqlite3.lib. So I am now 
able to link sqlite3 into my exe.

- No luck with curl yet.
- As per comment from @pilger -- I got the sample DerelictSDL2 
program working after adding 	"derelict-sdl2": "~>3.0.0-beta" to 
dub.json and "import derelict.sdl2.sdl;" to app.d
- I see the exe is bigger, so I assume it it added to the 
relevant curl DLL -- but the separate Windows DLL file is still 
required to execute the exe. So it is not finding the imported 
DLL file!

Is it possible to distribute an .exe file without the required 
libcurl DLL?

Many Thanks
