Not able to use TBB with Cmake

Hi,

   I am trying to use TBB through CMAKE. Using CMAKE I am trying to download TBB automatically and set the paths for various compilers. Bt when I try to so the following:

set( ext.TBB_URL "http://threadingbuildingblocks.org/sites/default/files/software_releases/windows/tbb41_20121003oss_w..." CACHE STRING "URL to download TBB from" )
ExternalProject_Add(
    TBB
    PREFIX ${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/external/tbb
    URL ${TBB_URL}
    URL_MD5 1b5024366b1e0434ed734f8b62f627a8
    UPDATE_COMMAND    ""
    BUILD_IN_SOURCE   1
    INSTALL_COMMAND   ""
    CONFIGURE_COMMAND ""
    BUILD_COMMAND     ""
)

The above command shall download TBB and install it in a particular location. Besides this it sets various paths for me. It gives me the following error:

2>------ Build started: Project: TBB, Configuration: Debug x64 ------

2> Building Custom Rule XXXXXXXXXXXXXX/superbuild/CMakeLists.txt

2> CMake does not need to re-run because XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\test\CMakeFiles\generate.stamp is up-to-date.

This seems to be like a TBB archiving issue to me. Any solution for this. Some important libraries like boost do support zip format of automatic download.

Hello,

What does this diagnostics mean? Doesn't cmake say that it can't delete local foder on the disk?
And second question: Are you trying to _untar_ ( [tar xfz]) ZIP-archive? should it work at all?
