Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Building OpenMPI v. 1.4.3 in VS2008
From: Shiqing Fan (fan_at_[hidden])

Hi Alan,

It looks like a problem of using a wrong generator in CMake GUI. I
double tested a fresh new downloaded 1.4.3 on my win7 machine with
VS2010, everything worked well.

Please check:
1. a proper CMake generator is used.
2. the CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE in CMake GUI and the build type in VS are both

If the error still happens, please provide me the file name and line
number where triggers the error when compiling it.
