I am trying to follow the instructions here using the Link with binaries option and a little confused on where to put the CMakeLists.txt file. It says to create it in my project folder which I assume is the root folder of my project. Further down I follow the build instructions:
- mkdir build
- cd build
- cmake -G …
If I do this I get an error that the CMakeLists file can’t be found ( because it’s in my root folder ). If I go up a directory and run cmake, it is successful but everything shows up in my root folder and not the build folder. Is CMakeLists supposed to go in the build folder?
I am using VS2017 in Windows.
