Problem with VS2017 and CMakeGNUtoMS_lib.bat.in (cmake-3.8-rc2)

Thompson, KT



I use the CMakeAddFortranSubdirectory feature in one of my projects.  This appears to be broken under Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition RC because CMake\share\cmake-3.8\Modules\Platform\GNUtoMS_lib.bat.in generates a batch file that contains:


call "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars32.bat"


and this batch function changes the current working directory to %USERPROFILE%/Source (unlike earlier versions) .  Has anyone else seen this?


I have fixed the issue by replacing the cmake provided GNUtoMS_lib.bat.in with


@echo off

set CWD=%CD%

call "@CMAKE_GNUtoMS_BAT@"

cd /d %CWD%

lib /machine:"@CMAKE_GNUtoMS_ARCH@" %*


I'm not sure if CMake needs to make this change more permanent or if this is a bug in VS2017.
