I'd love to play around with this, but my skills in building alpha-ish software are not up to par. If anyone has any clue how to build a working compiler out of these sources, please let me know. Also, is it even in a state where this is worth doing yet?

Also make sure that the vs tools are in your path as they are used to convert the cil to .exe. I have a seperate folder for each D compiler and a script to call it: d-net.cmd: echo off call "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" x86 SET PATH=C:\D\dnet\bin;%PATH% cd C:\D\dnet echo "Ready for D.Net" echo on I have a shortcut to cmd with the target set like this: C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /K C:\d\d-dnet.cmd Here is a simple hello world: module hw; import System; void main() { string s = "hello world\n"; Console.WriteLine(sys(s)); } dnet -I../../src/phobos/ -I../../src/druntime/import/ hw.d The sys function converts the D UTF8 string to a System.String. The sys function is part of the dnet runtime so you will need dnetlib.dll either in the project's folder or installed to the usuall place. I am manually specifying my imports becuase of a bug somewhere http://dnet.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=1304
