Hello,

I've installed the latest version of Visual D (1.01) and Visual Studio Community Edition 2019. When I try to compile and run the hello world sample code: it fails with the message "TRACKER : error TRK0004: Failed to locate: "FileTracker32.dll". The system cannot find the file specified."

Is there something more that I should have installed / configured.

Regards,

Jos

IRRC either dmd.exe / d compiler path is wrong in the visuald config or not set or msbuild is not in path.

For me, FileTracker32.dll is in the MSBuild folders.

I suspect you didn't install the C++ development environment aswell. That is also needed to use the static libraries of the VC runtime and the native linker.
