I'm on linux but this work similarly.
First goes into the test folder and build the runner

    $ rdmd --build-only run.d

Then setup the tool

Command: run.exe
Arguments: <leave empty>
Initial Directory: <leave empty or select the folder where is 
located run.exe>
and check "Prompt for Arguments"

then when you execute the tool you type the test name, incl. the 
folder, for example "compilable/bug33.d"
