I can’t really take credit for stuff on Windows.  If you’re on Windows, I’d 
recommend trying Microsoft’s friendly fork of the runtime from:

https://github.com/microsoft/libobjc2

They’ve made it buildable with Visual Studio and added support for exceptions 
that interoperate with Visual-Studio-compiled C++.

Do expect ABI changes from them, I’ve been helping them a bit on refining their 
exception stuff and hope to have the same support in clang at some point, but 
if you want to use modern Objective-C and Objective-C++ on Windows then it’s 
probably your best bet.  There are a few changes in GNUstep libobjc2 that 
haven’t made it into their fork, so it’s worth doing a merge from 
https://github.com/gnustep/libobjc2 before building.  They should pull in the 
fixes soon, and are working on upstreaming their other stuff once it’s a bit 
more stable.
