Toolchain files and vcpkg

CMake mailing list



I’m trying to use packages (HPX specifically) installed with vcpkg, and according to its wiki, it is easiest to do so via the toolchain file provided by vcpkg.


Here’s is what I’m doing:


cd build

cmake -G „Ninja” -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -D CMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=C:/Users/nagy-/Source/Repos/vcpkg/scripts/buildsystems/vcpkg.cmake ..\


But it seems that CMake completely disregards the toolchain file, as if it weren’t even there. Same happens for Visual Studio generators, not just Ninja. Am I doing something wrong? Does anyone have a minimal working script with HPX installed through vcpkg?
