I try to install Gazebo 8 on windows 7 with Visual studio 2017, but whenever I use the command '..\configure' I have this error:

-- Enable upstream CFlags

CMake Error at cmake/DefaultCFlags.cmake:64 (message):

Gazebo requires VS 2013 or greater.

I don't know if it's due to my version of visual studio (but I assume that 2017 is a greater version than 2013).

So what do I do?

I found the solution, in the file DefaultCFlags.cmake there is this line (line 63):

if (NOT MSVC12)

So you need to use visual studio 12 (2013). (or you can change this line, for me it was if (NOT MSVC14), I don't really know if it will cause some problems later but it work)
