Just install Win 2008 and VS.NET 2008 this afternoon and try to build
JDK. There're 2 tiny issues:
1. cl.exe's version is 15.XXXX, not recognized by Compiler-msvc.gmk.
Duplicate the MS.NET 2003 lines in the file to accept 15.
2. MSVCDIR is not defined in VS.NET 2008's vcvars.bat. Instead
there's a VCINSTALLDIR. ifndef MSVCDIR and ifdef VCINSTALLDIR, then
set MSVCDIR := $(VCINSTALLDIR).
and the build seems to go on happily.
Then I decide to install Terminal Services so that I can control the
machine from somewhere else. A restart is needed so I kill the build
process and restart the machine.
Unfortunately, cygwin cannot start anymore, google knows this but no
I'll try install MKS.
