Hi everyone,


Build.bat has not been working correctly for a couple of years and is now completely broken after the JDK Version change. Rewrote it to use the Visual Studio project files instead, examples of use:


make\windows\build.bat tiered fastdebug


This will generate the vcproj files using create.bat (if they haven't been generated before) and compile the JVM using msbuild. The whole process takes about a minute on my machine and less than that if the vcproj files are already there. 


Tested locally with x86 and x64 builds.
