Trying to get "Simulate Robot Code on Desktop" to work with C++

Hi, I am trying to get the roborio simulator working on Windows 10. Spending many hours on this. I can see from the forum discussion “WPILIB rocks!” that some folks are having success with this.

I have successfully installed gradle and gradlew. Upgraded my wpilib install.

When I run “WPILib: Simulate Robot Code on Desktop” I get the following error in the “OUTPUT: WPILib Log”:
2019-02-17T21:51:17.583Z verbose: Found Java Home Version: 11 at C:\Users\Public\frc2019\jdk

Anyone resolved this already?
Also, if the simulator works, what happens? Can you enable the simulated roborio? What do you see. A pointer to basic screenshots would be great.

I was able to get past this problem by starting a fresh workspace and getting the latest WPI lib. I was able to build our robot to run on the Desktop.

Consider the issue resolved.
