Sorry -- I should have been more clear. If you ran the OMPI binary installer, you don't need to build OMPI from source (not even with cmake) - you have OMPI installed, so you don't need to do it again.

I was just pointing out all the extra text material we have specifically about the OMPI Windows stuff.
