Does tbb_build work on Windows with MSVC?

Does tbb_build work on Windows with MSVC?

I have quickly tried the "sub_string_finder" example working with CMAKE Visual Studio 2015, windows

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.0.0 FATAL_ERROR)

project(sub_string_finder CXX)
include(${TBB_ROOT}/cmake/TBBBuild.cmake)

# Build Intel TBB with enabled Community Preview Features (CPF).
tbb_build(TBB_ROOT ${TBB_ROOT} CONFIG_DIR TBB_DIR MAKE_ARGS tbb_cpf=1)

But get a bunch of errors like:
 

Building Intel TBB: C:/Strawberry/c/bin/gmake.exe -j16 tbb_build_prefix=tbb_cmake_build_subdir tbb_build_dir=C:/Users/ME/Desktop/TESTTBB/tbb/examples/GettingStarted/sub_string_finder/build/tbb_cmake_build compiler=cl tbb_cpf=1

make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
gmake.exe[1]: *** [C:/Users/ME/Desktop/TESTTBB/tbb/./build/common_rules.inc:76: concurrent_hash_map.obj] Error 2
gmake.exe: *** [Makefile:32: tbb] Error 2

... not sure why its picking gmake from strawberry and not nmake from VS
or if this is even possible on windows, or is this tool a linux on thing?

Hello
According your error message:

process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, cl /nologo /Foconcurrent_hash_map.obj /c /MDd /Od /Ob0 /Zi /EHsc /GR /Zc:forScope /Zc:wchar_t /DTBB_USE_DEBUG /D__TBB_LIB_NAME=tbb_preview_debug.lib /DDO_ITT_NOTIFY /GS /DUSE_WINTHREAD /D_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE /D_WIN32_WINNT=0x0502 /D__TBB_BUILD=1 /W4 /D__TBB_CPF_BUILD=1 /IC:/Users/ME/Desktop/TESTTBB/tbb/./src /IC:/Users/ME/Desktop/TESTTBB/tbb/./src/rml/include /IC:/Users/ME/Desktop/TESTTBB/tbb/./include C:/Users/ME/Desktop/TESTTBB/tbb/./src/tbb/concurrent_hash_map.cpp, ...) failed. make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.;

You haven't a cl compiler in your environment; I guess you should run it in a compiler command prompt
