cmake

    Question

  • Just now I've installed MS Visual Studio 2015 in order to compile some source code. Firstly I need cmake, then nmake. However, I cannot find cmake.exe in the deployed directory "D:\Visual Studio Community\VC\bin\". Instead there is bscmake.exe, but it doesn't work as needed. There is also directory "D:\Visual Studio Community\Common7\IDE\Extensions\pcpdf2ai.ygv\Starterkit\Extensions\cmake\", but no exe-files found there.

    Is cmake utility included in MS Visual Studio, or is it necessary to install it as another package?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    As far as I know, CMake Tools for Visual Studio is an extension for Microsoft Visual Studio. You need to install the CMake Tools separately.

    Please refer to the following link to download CMake tool.

    Also refer the link it may provide you information on CMake and VSO.
