I don't understand what's meant with 'CMAKE can not find the command
line program' - I called cmake.exe and it's in the path. But the three
paths above aren't available on my system.

Yes, after a second call to 'cmake .' the vcproj files were generated
without any warnings !? Currently compiling new cmake.exe, but I get a
lot of warnings because cmake 2.2 don't suppress ugly msvc2005 'use of
deprecated function' warnings

There is no such entry, and yes I tried CMakeSetup.exe but failed
because cl.exe isn't in my PATH - I call vcvars32.bat to set the correct
values (via Visual Studio command prompt)

See KDE/kdelibs/win :-)
