Subject: [OMPI users] Problems with building with VS 2010 and VS 2012

Hello everyone,

I'm having troubles with building OpenMPI v1.6.4 (actually all v1.6 and
v1.7 versions) release sources (in both x86 and x64 modes) on Windows
machine using VS 2010 and VS 2012 compilers and cmake v2.8.10.2. Just to
note, I tried it with VS2008 too and it worked fine in x86 mode, but failed
in x64 mode. Here is error I get with VS2010 and VS2012 when I execute
'cmake-gui ..' and push Configure:

CMake Error at C:/Program Files (x86)/CMake
get_filename_component called with incorrect number of arguments
Call Stack (most recent call first):
contrib/platform/win32/CMakeModules/setup_f77.cmake:18 (include)
contrib/platform/win32/CMakeModules/ompi_configure.cmake:616 (INCLUDE)
CMakeLists.txt:99 (BEGIN_CONFIGURE)

If I naively mask off using setup_F77 from ompi_configure.cmake (because I
don't wan't Fortran support), I get following compile error:

1>------ Build started: Project: libmpi_cxx, Configuration: Debug Win32
1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio
11.0\VC\include\xkeycheck.h(199): warning C4005: 'inline' : macro
: see previous definition of 'inline'
1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio
11.0\VC\include\xkeycheck.h(242): fatal error C1189: #error : The C++
Standard Library forbids macroizing keywords. Enable warning C4005 to find
the forbidden macro.

Do you have idea what I should patch to make it working with MS compilers?

Best regards,
