Trouble Building TBB in windows with CMake

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to use TBB by building from source in my project. I'm doing this on a Windows 10 system and am using the MSVC toolchain that comes with Visual Studio 2019 Community edition. I"m using the standard approach of `git submodule add` and pointing it to TBB github source to get the code. I then followed the following steps in my main CMakeLists.txt.  

# TBB
include(tbb/cmake/TBBBuild.cmake)
tbb_build(TBB_ROOT ${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/tbb/ CONFIG_DIR TBB_DIR MAKE_ARGS tbb_cpf=1)

 

When I run the cmake configuration step I get the following error.

"C:\Program Files\JetBrains\CLion 2019.2\bin\cmake\win\bin\cmake.exe" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -G "CodeBlocks - NMake Makefiles" C:\Users\kartik\Projects\cv\hello_cv

TBB Dir = TBB_DIR-NOTFOUND

 

Is the gmake referred to here GNU Make ? If so why is there a dependency on GNU Make when I'm using the MSVC toolchain? In this case I'm using my IDE (CLion which generates NMake files for windows by default) however I can reproduce the problem running cmake in a power shell terminal.

 

 

PS C:\Users\kartik\Projects\cv\hello_cv\build-out> cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -G "Visual Studio 16 2019" ..

Is there a way I can work around this ? I have a MinGW toolchain which should have the GCC tools, however, when I use that toolchain I get the same error as well. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

is gnu make tool called gmake

is gnu make tool called gmake in your mingw package? it looks you need gmake available in %PATH% when you run cmake.
