Thanks for this, looks great.
Could the generated code be annotated with nothrow @nogc too?

+1

This is actually missing in many core.sys.windows modules.

Please file bugzilla issues for them!

I don't know what to say about nothrow. There are WinAPI functions generating exceptions. For example the code below trying to allocate size_t.max bytes, even we reserved 10 only:

auto h = HeapCreate(4, 10, 10);
auto p = HeapAlloc(h, 4, size_t.max);

Now, the D runtime catches internally any Windows exception and throws a generic Win32 Error without any other information, and of course, this will qualify HeapAlloc as a nothrow function.

In reality, this should not be just an uncatchable Error, but a full Exception object having the associated error code (0xC0000017), the associated default message ("Not Enough Quota") and the value of the offending parameter (0xFFFFFFFF). All this information is available in SEH records but it is ignored by D runtime.

I'm not going to file issues for each individual module, since there are about 100 of them. There already is a general issue about Windows headers: https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16267

I actually started working on adding the missing annotations to druntime half a year ago, but abandoned it because it took more time than expected. The tricky part is that modules can contain callback definitions, and adding @nogc nothrow to those is a breaking change. This is where Argument dependent attributes (https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/pull/198) could be useful.

I might pick it up again, but if these auto-generated bindings can be incorporated into core.sys.windows that wouldn't be necessary anymore.
