I'm new to D so this may have been asked and answered several times by now. My apologies if I'm being redundant. I did look but found nothing that looked like this issue.

I have installed Visual Studio first [VS2017 15.8.6] (BTW you might mention that Visual C++ needs to be installed, not Visual Studio. It took me a while to figure out why the installer said VS wasn't installed).
Then I installed D. I opened the sc.ini and added the cofig values for VCINSTALLDIR, WindowsSdkDir, UniversalCRTSdkDir, and UCRTVersion.
I open a D2 64-bit command prompt and use "dub fetch dlangide" and "dub run --build=release --arch=x86_64 dlangide" like it says on https://code.dlang.org/packages/dlangide and I get the following output:

    dlangui 0.9.180: building configuration "default"...
    dlangide 0.8.14: building configuration "default"...
    src\dlangide\ui\newfile.d(100,101): Warning: C preprocessor directive #FF0000 is not supported

    C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin\dmd.exe failed with exit code 1.

I've also tried "dub run --build=release --arch=x86_mscoff dlangide" in D2 32-bit command prompt and get the following:

    dlangui 0.9.180: building configuration "default"...
    dlangide 0.8.14: building configuration "default"...

    C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin\dmd.exe failed with exit code 1.

Any advice on what I'm doing wrong? Is there a different version I'm supposed to be using?
Thanks for the help.

I'm getting the same output when trying to build dlangide with dub on Windows.

There is a prebuilt binary on its Github page [1], it's from one year ago but at least it's compiled and it seems to start up properly.
