How do I add ARM in additon to Win32 for cmakems/Tests/VSWinStorePhone?

Sep 2, 2014 at 10:32 PM

How do I add the ARM platform in addition to the Win32 platform for the cmakems/Tests/VSWinStorePhone sample?

This is the cmake command I am using that let's me run the sample project on the WP81 emulator, but I would also like to run the sample on a device:
cmake -DCMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME=WindowsPhone -DCMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION=8.1 c:/Users/matt/Documents/GitHub/cmakems/Tests/VSWinStorePhone/
I tried adding -DCMAKE_VS_PLATFORMS="Win32;ARM" to my cmake command line (as suggested at CMake for Windows Store and Windows Phone QuickStart Tutorial), but it didn't add the ARM platform to the project and instead I received this make warning:
CMake Warning:
  Manually-specified variables were not used by the project:

I am using the CMakeMS installer you released today, 9/2/2014:
cmake --version
cmake version 3.0.20140822

Hi Matt,

At the moment, you need to create a different per platform and select the platform through the generator:
cmake -G "Visual Studio 12 2013 ARM" -DCMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME=WindowsPhone -DCMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION=8.1 C:/Users/matt/Documents/GitHub/cmakems/Tests/VSWinStorePhone/ 
We realize that this is not the most efficient solution. I will re-publish the changes to support multiple platforms soon, on a branch for people to leverage.

Thank you for your help gillesk - this is an OK workaround for us for now.

Hi Matt,

I've put back the support to have multiple platforms targeted from the same project. Add the following define CMAKE_VS_EFFECTIVE_PLATFORMS to specify the targets.

Here's an example that will have all three platforms in the same project file.
cmake -G "Visual Studio 12 2013" -DCMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME=WindowsStore -DCMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION=8.1 -DCMAKE
_VS_EFFECTIVE_PLATFORMS=Win32;ARM;x64 C:/Users/matt/Documents/GitHub/cmakems/Tests/VSWinStorePhone/ 
You can download the binary from: or use the MSMultiPlatform branch.

Hello gillesk,
thanks for the answer. Your solution does not work for Visual Studio 14 2015 with System Version 10 and the newest cmake from git.
The command:
ignores the CMAKE_VS_EFFECTIVE_PLATFORMS . Is there a solution available for that?

Thank you.

Best regards

I'm currently using cmake 3.4 RC2. In that build, I create a different project for each CPU architecture by specifying CMAKE_GENERATOR_PLATFORM. I don't know if CMAKE_VS_EFFECTIVE_PLATFORMS is supported anymore.

Thanks. This works.
The solution with the "Visual Studio 14 2015 ARM" parameter works for me, too.
I hoped that there is a solution so that it is possible to use one project with 3 configurations.

Best regards
