Hello Hubin,


the proper name for the generator is “Visual Studio 10”. You need to run CMake with the MS Visual Studio environment correctly set up. That is: select the MS Visual Studio Command Prompt from the Start menu, go to the correct directory and then run the CMake command.

cmake show error :

CMake Error: Could not create named generator Visual Studio 10 2010


The I google,people say I can ignore -G "Visual Studio 10 2010",The cmake will correctly detect the local(my 


computer) compiler;so I do that :



The cmake run ,about 1 minutes,cmake run over,The last info is:
