Perhaps an example of what you're trying to do and what you've tried to do
to figure it out would help us to help you better.

this is the call:

TableItem* result = table.search(ws, index-ws);

table.search is a public method, ws is a char* that points to a global char
array in the main module. index is another char* that points to a position in
the same char array. TableItem is a struct declared in another module.

table is declared in the main module, it doesnt have a constructor. i assume
that the error is in the function call because table.search prints a string
before executing any code, and the code before the call has been tested too.

i hope that i had been doing something wrong and that this is not another bug in
the compiler...

Make sure you're "newing" table: table=new whatever(...);

error. Even if I define a blank constructor the error is still there.

The compiler error has nothing to do with the class having no constructor.
For example, the following compiles just fine:

class X {}
void main() { X x=new X(); }

I'm guessing your problem is around there because I've had that too :), and
very often some persons ask about almost the same.

If it's static or global you'll have to put the assignment in a static constructor: Application application; static this() { application = new Application(); }

This is BS, Walter.  Please allow static initialization of arrays, structs,
object references, and effectively move the code from global scope into the
start of the static constructor.

D would be easy to use, *except* that you have all these restrictions that
cause us to have to do things the non-intuitive way, apparently in the name
of readability or keeping the compiler implementation simple.

I believe everyone's gut instinct is to put initializations at the point of
declaration.  It's easier to maintain if they're kept together, as well.
