Hello,

 

I am currently following a tutorial on how to create a graphics window in OpenGL in C++, and it involves downloading source code for some header files and building it using CMake. However, when I try to configure it, I get this result:
 

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:4 (project):
Failed to run MSBuild command:

C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio/2017/Community/MSBuild/15.0/Bin/MSBuild.exe

to get the value of VCTargetsPath:

Microsoft ® Build Engine version 15.7.180.61344 for .NET Framework

Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

See also "C:/Users/sonny/Documents/Header Files/glfw-3.2.1/glfw_build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".

 

I am not sure how to fix this. I tried to figure out why it can't execute the MSBuild command, but so far nothing I've tried has worked.

 

Please note that I am still relatively inexperienced with C++, so if you know what it is I need to do please explain it to me. Thank you.

 

For reference, I will attach the CMakeLists.txt files.
