Can't run gradlew on Windows Vista for Forge 1.8


Recommended Posts



I'm trying to write Minecraft mods. I have Java 8, installed Eclipse and downloaded Forge1.8 from here:


I unzipped it into directory: C:\Program Files\Java\Forge-1.8


When I try to run command "gradlew setupDecompWorspace eclipse" after a while I get the following error message:


FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.


* What went wrong:

Failed to notify build listener.


I tried to run with --debug option and see exception:


15:34:55.299 [DEBUG] [org.gradle.cache.internal.DefaultFileLockManager] Waiting

to acquire shared lock on no_buildscript class cache for build file 'C:\Program

Do you know what might be wrong?


Thank you,
