Building Open MPI using CMake is the recommended procedure, you probably
should stick with it, and it has been proved working well on different
Windows platforms. The other building procedures are not well supported
for some time now, and they are deprecated.
For the problems that you got when building with CMake, it might because
some dependent headers/libraries are not installed. Could you please
provide the detail CMake error output, so that I can help you fix it?
