Windows 8.1 installation hangs on configure step of gazebo code

Hello, I am having trouble installing Gazebo on Windows 8.1. I have Visual Studio 2013 and have installed everything to the tee as described here, and get as far as step 11, the configure step for the main gazebo code. What happens is cmake says Found ../../FreeImage-vc12-x64-release-debug/Source/FreeImage.h and then it hangs forever (I left it on all night and nothing happened). I independently compiled FreeImage in VS2013 and tried again, but same thing happens.

How do I get past this?

Also please do not suggest running in virtual linux as I have tried and it it much too slow for me. And I can't dual boot into linux for other reasons pertaining to my project. Thanks
