Shouldn't you be starting with rt_init() in ServiceMain?

Where does `mixin DECLARE_HANDLE!` come from?

Nevermind, it looks like the git mirror is out of date. It would be useful to have as a dub project, maybe I could make a dub.json if you promise to push your changes to it? ;)

Which git mirror are you talking about?

I have two auto-updating git mirrors for the win32 bindings:

The entire bindings project:
https://github.com/CS-svnmirror/dsource-bindings

Just the win32 package (useful for git submodules):

The runtime should be already initialized before main() is run, however, now that you mention it, I think ServiceMain should call thread_attachThis(). I see there is a commented-out line in the code to do this already.

I did try the suggested thread_attachThis() but it did not help.
Not saying it should not be done, but it was not the cause or the
solution. Ultimately, it was the HANDLE that was the problem.
Thanks, to Vladimir, this has been resolved.

I will continue to experiment with and try to create my own
"reference" implementation for a Windows Service since much of
what I plan to write in D will be deployed as such.

Oh! I really thought it was this:

https://github.com/AndrejMitrovic/WindowsAPI

That's because there's a link to it on the dsource page

Browse the source of the latter link and you'll find Vladimir's fix. Andrej's mirror is not updated yet.

That's because I've just added it :)

Here's the result of refactoring it.
