Current status on Windows 10

Hi, I'm planning to write a new GUI program, mostly on Linux, but I'd like it to run on Windows 10 as well. I've seen some posts about problems and only supporting 32bit on Windows.
Is that still the case?
I'm just trying to understand if gtk, gtkD and D on windows is a practical solution at this time.

(I tried Qt and C++, but that was just not for me.)

The GTK runtime is available for both 32 and 64 bits Windows, you can
use the installers available on gtkd.org or install gtk using msys2
https://www.msys2.org/.

If you want to run both 32 and 64 bit GTK aplications on the same
machine you will need to install both the 32 and 64 bit runtimes.
