Subject Re: Building for Windows
Date Thu, 12 Feb 2015 07:26:13 GMT
Though I've gone go one step further, the build now stops with the following 

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.codehaus.mojo:exec-maven-plugin:1.2:exec 
(compile-ms-winutils) on project hadoop-common: Command execution failed. 
Cannot run program "msbuild"...

I'm running the build from the Windows  SDK command prompt, but msbuild.exe 
isn't on the PATH and it is actually missing in the whole C:.

I do have a msbuild.exe file on the Windows installation CD-ROM in


but I prefer avoid using it directly, because I need a repeatable build 
procedure. This is a test drive, but I'll have to build hadoop on a production 
server that has no internet access, so I'd like to understand what should I do 
in order to have msbuild.exe in C:.
