The "Visual D project" is the custom project type that allows building D files but has only little support to integrate with C/C++ or other languages.

The "Visual C++ Project" is - well - a regular Visual C++ project, but with the help of some build customizations, it can contain and build D files. This integrates rather seamlessly with other Visual Studio projects inheriting all the additional functionality for linker, manifest, etc. It also allows building projects with msbuild.

I consider the "Visual D projects" legacy, but it has some additional features (e.g. building the D runtime with debug options for better debugging), inheriting imports from other projects) that are not so easily ported to the Visual C++ projects.
