Well on windows it's always a bit more difficult i guess :-)
After setting up my build environment as described on the wiki i first tried
$ gradle tasks
This works as expected! When running
$ gradle sdk
or just gradle without any target i get the following error:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':fxpackager:buildJavaPackager'.
> Could not call NativeCompileTask.compile() on task 
> ':fxpackager:buildJavaPackager'

Is this a "known issue" and do you know what's going wrong here?
Should i post more "info" or "debug" output, too?
