dwt on windows
I have written a very simple dwt app, but cannot get it to run properly in 
windows. Below is what I'm trying to do:

Craig@DESKTOP:C:\Documents and Settings\Craig\Desktop> dsss build -full 
hifi.d

This builds without issue, but when I run the executable, a console opens up 
with the following text:

CreateActCtx failed, hence theme support will not be available
Please check for:
- missing link option -L/su:windows:5 or -L/su:console:5
- missing link option -L/rc:dwt
- resource file 'dwt.res' was not accessible by linker
: The specified image file did not contain a resource section.

Based on the message above, I tried the following build command:

Craig@DESKTOP:C:\Documents and Settings\Craig\Desktop> dsss 
build -full -L/su:windows:5 hifi.d

When I run the executable from the command prompt, the warning does not 
appear and the program runs with a window being displayed. However, if I try 
and double click the executable from my desktop, no window opens up.

Can anyone tell me what the proper build command is so that I can run this 
like a normal windows application? I have attached the simple code I'm 
trying to run.

Like the message suggest
copy the file dwt.res from the dwt-samples to your build directory
build -full -L/su:windows:5 -L/rc:dwt hifi.d

This works for me with your examples.

Re: dwt on windows
Thanks! That definitely worked. I didn't have dwt-samples installed, so I 
had no idea where the dwt.res file was coming from. It builds and runs fine 
now.
