Hi all,

On Windows, if one has multiple VS installations side by side, is it
possible to choose which Visual Studio installation to use?

Note that I start the configure script from within the cygwin shell.

OpenJDK configure is reading VS environment properties VS100COMNTOOLS/VS120COMNTOOLS/VS140COMNTOOLS etc. One option is to set just one of them. AFAIK configure takes latest supported VS (2013 for ojdk9).

Another option is to use configure parameters, but I don't know how exactly use them. Try to look to configure help

$ bash ./configure --help | grep toolchain
  --with-tools-dir        alias for --with-toolchain-path for backwards
  --with-toolchain-path   prepend these directories when searching for
                          toolchain binaries (compilers etc)
  --with-toolchain-type   the toolchain type (or family) to use, use '--help'
                          the version of the toolchain to look for, use
  --with-build-devkit     Devkit to use for the build platform toolchain
                          [toolchain dependent]
The following toolchains are available as arguments to --with-toolchain-type.
