Thanks for the reply. I’m following both wiki pages on building the tip and the 8u versions.
For this tag (8.0-b132), I get the following error with Gradle 4, so I downgraded to 1.8.
> java.lang.String cannot be cast to org.gradle.api.artifacts.Configuration
I pulled the version 14.15.26706 from here. It’s the only subfolder on my system.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\VC\Redist\MSVC

The instructions for building OpenJFX 8 are in the wiki , though I never built this version myself.
Usually when "cl.exe" is not found it's because of a wrong MSVC_VER variable value. In VS 2017, this file is located under "VC\Tools\MSVC\<MSVC_VER>\bin" (there are 4 versions under this folder tree). It could be that the MSVC_VER value does not match the folder name in this path. I don't know why you're looking for it inside cygwin64, but, again, I am unfamiliar with this build.
Also, the Gradle version needs to be 4.8, not 1.8.

able to build the Java code successfully, but am getting a path error

This is my environment
export VS150COMNTOOLS="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft <file://Microsoft> Visual
export WINSDK_DIR="C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft SDKs/Windows/v10.0A"
I tried replacing the win.gradle from the 8.0-b132 with the file from the
tip. In that case, I got a "WINSDK_DIR" not defined error.
Does anyone build openjfx 8 with 2017 or is everyone using the older VS for
the backports? DirectX gave me an error when I tried to install the 2010
SDK. Are the DirectX APIs embedded in VS now?
