Create DLL using JNI

I am trying to use the Java Native Interface(JNI) to compile and run a simple program. I am following the steps found here:

I have gone through the first several steps successfully.

1) I created a Java program with appropriate native methods

2) I called javah -jni on my class file to create the C style header file

3) I wrote the implementation specified by the header in C++

4) Now I am at the step when I need to compile the C++ file and generate the .dll
I initially tried running this command:

but when I ran this I got an error:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\include\jni.h(39) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'stdio.h': No such file or directory

So the command I am trying to run now is:

And When I run this I get:
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'libcpmt.lib'
Which doesn't make any sense to me beucause 'libcpmt.lib' is on my PATH variable and should be including in the cl command because I point -I to the directory it is in.

Has anyone encountered this issue?
Any help would be great.

P.s - I have also posted this question on the Microsoft Visual C++ forum here:

I didn't notice a forum that had JNI specifically listed on the homepage until after I posted this. I will repost there. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Here is the link to the new topic:

I agree. Here's the link:
