HI David, Andrew,

Thanks for the reply

I ran /mnt/c/Tools/VS/2017/Community/VC/Tools/MSVC/14.16.27023/bin/Hostx64/x64/cl.exe directly, it produced the following log:

$ /mnt/c/Tools/VS/2017/Community/VC/Tools/MSVC/14.16.27023/bin/Hostx64/x64/cl.exe
Microsoft (R) C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 19.16.27030.1 for x64

Andrew,

Thanks for providing me with the link to the actual doc. Now this command looks like:

bash ./configure --with-boot-jdk=/mnt/c/Tools/Java/jdk-11.0.2 --with-toolchain-version=2017

But the result the same :^(
Please note I ran it in the clean environment that means I did not set any env variables.

Suspicious lines in log:
checking for Boot JDK... /mnt/c/Tools/Java/jdk-11.0.2
checking Boot JDK version... java version "11.0.2" 2019-01-15 LTS  Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.2+9-LTS)  Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.2+9-LTS, mixed mode)

Not sure whether it can be ignored that CDS creation failed

and at the end

configure: The result from running it was: ""
configure: error: A microsoft compiler is required. Try setting --with-tools-dir.
configure exiting with result code 1

Thanks,
Vitaly
