If cmake was so marvelous, it should work easily on any system
but it don't without "serious search". That's what I experimented
and others users that do not post on this list too ( LG knows that
it's true).

Another point : you are all saying that have to do  two things
( build a projet with Cmake and after load this project in
Visual Studio to generate a solution) is faster and easier than
just do one thing (build the sources with Scons), and I really do
not unerstand that.

My last message for the "resistance",
regards jms
