## Press [[File:CMake GUI Configure.png]]. The first time that the project is configured, CMake will bring up a window asking you to "Specify the generator for this project" i.e. which compiler you wish to use. Select Visual Studio 16 2019 (or the respective version for your own copy of Visual Studio), and press Finish. CMake will now do a check on your system and will produce a preliminary build configuration.

## CMake adds new configuration variables in red. Some have a value ending with <tt>-NOTFOUND</tt>. These variables should receive your attention. Some errors will prevent SimGear from building and others will simply invalidate some options without causing build errors.

Some errors will prevent SimGear from building and others will simply invalidate some options (e.g. Swift VATSIM support) without causing build errors and thus can be ignored more or less unless you need that option.  
 
### First check the <tt>MSVC_3RDPARTY_ROOT</tt> variable. If it is not set, chances are that there will be a lot of <tt>-NOTFOUND</tt> errors. Instead of trying to fix every error individually, set that variable to the location of the <tt>\Dependencies</tt> folder in the directory structure that is presented above. Then press [[File:CMake GUI Configure.png]] again.
