I am pretty sure now the WIKI is wrong. The argument "release" in 
make -fwin32.mak release
will by intentional delete the folder "generated"

But this folder is needed for building druntime as described in 
wiki chapter "Building D runtime".

I somehow solved the issue by calling make without the "release" 
Either the WIKI needs to be adapted or the make script.

Kind regards
