first i compile source file with cmake then i build with vs c++ 2008

if i select Visual studio 9 2008 win 64 i got the following error

Check for working C compiler using: Visual Studio 9 2008 Win64
Check for working C compiler using: Visual Studio 9 2008 Win64 -- broken
CMake Error at C:/Program Files (x86)/CMake 2.8/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/CMakeTestCCompiler.cmake:52 (MESSAGE):
The C compiler "cl" is not able to compile a simple test program.

It fails with the following output:

Use:

vcexpress [solutionfile | projectfile | anyfile.ext] [switches]



The first argument for devenv is usually a solution file or project file.

You can also use any other file as the first argument if you want to have
the

file open automatically in an editor. When you enter a project file, the
IDE

looks for an .sln file with the same base name as the project file in the

parent directory for the project file. If no such .sln file exists, then
the

IDE looks for a single .sln file that references the project. If no such
single

.sln file exists, then the IDE creates an unsaved solution with a default
.sln

file name that has the same base name as the project file.



Command line builds:

devenv solutionfile.sln /build [ solutionconfig ] [ /project
projectnameorfile [ /projectconfig name ] ]

Available command line switches:



/Log Logs IDE activity to the specified file for troubleshooting.

/ResetSettings Restores the IDE's default settings, optionally resets to

the specified VSSettings file.

/SafeMode Launches the IDE in safe mode loading minimal windows.



Product-specific switches:



/debugexe Open the specified executable to be debugged. The

remainder of the command line is passed to this

executable as its arguments.

/useenv Use PATH, INCLUDE, LIBPATH, and LIB environment variables

instead of IDE paths for VC++ builds.



To attach the debugger from the command line, use:

VsJITDebugger.exe -p <pid>
