    Hey there, CMake newbie here. I'm getting an error after going through the config process, "project files may be invalid". Nice little one-way ticket to Vaguesville, with stops at Google, Bing, and (my personal favorite ) DuckDuckGo (lol). Soooooo……..?
    Is there a log file someplace, or some obscure little nano-setting that isn't precisely 3.14159265 microns in width, or do I just cast Expecto Patronum? 😀

    Obviously, I've struggled with this ridiculously complex program before, and simply don't speak the lingo. It's all dark magic or rocket-science. And sadly, all the best open-source projects require it. Sooooo…….?

    lol at this point the only theory I have is that if I can create a new Visual Studio or Code::Blocks project, add all the files, compile and pray it works, I might get the binaries. But that's literally the best I got. Any ideas? Thanks. 😀

    Very helpful, but what I don't understand is why are we building two solutions? one with CMake and another one with VS. To be more precise, why is it necessary to build another solution of an already configured CMake solution in Visual Studio ? Can not we use the Cmake built only for Visaul Studio projects?

    I always get the error C1083 when building the ALL_BUILD target:
    Cannot open source file: 'C:Users…': No such file or directory' (this is an example. It doesn't open one files).
    I did the exact same things you mentioned. What am I doing wrong?
