I had to figure out how to do this for my app, so here's some sample 
code for you enjoyment. :)

Needs a Tango and dwt-win install to build.  The other required files 
are in the attachment.

Here's the main file, that shows how the use the StatusbarProgress 
wrapper class:

module taskbartest;

import tango.io.Stdout;
import tango.sys.win32.Types;

import dwt.DWT;
import dwt.widgets.Display;
import dwt.widgets.Shell;

import link;
import mswindows.taskbarprogress;

void main() {
	auto display = new Display();
	auto shell = new Shell(display);

	TaskbarProgress tbProgress;
	try {
		tbProgress = new TaskbarProgress(shell.handle);

		// try out setProgressValue and setProgressState
		tbProgress.setProgressValue(33, 100);
		Stdout.formatln("Nice, eh?");
	catch (Exception e) {
		Stdout.formatln("{}", e);

	while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
		if (!display.readAndDispatch())
	if (tbProgress)
