I just ran into this issue as well. I haven't had a chance to fix it on my end, but this is what I've found.

This line
Performing "debug" build using C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin\dmd.exe for x86_64.
means that it is compiling a 64bit program on Windows.

On Windows, if you are trying to compile a 64bit program, then it will try to link with lld if it cannot find a Microsoft linker [1]. The failure is likely due your Microsoft linker (or lld) either not being installed properly or wrong version or configured improperly. If you don't have Visual Studio Community installed, that might be a first step. Another short-term fix might be to try compiling with the -m32 dflag (need to put in your dub.sdl/json).
