cmake script with visual studio 14 (windows) and compile-own-FFTW - Redmine #1961
Archive from user: Bill Katt
When trying to compile gromacs 5.1.2 using the cmake utility and recommended options, and then using either cmake —build or loading the project into the visual studio GUI and trying to build the project, it crashes when trying to build/compile FFTW. This appears to be because some part of the project/script is telling it to call ‘make’, which doesn’t exist in visual studio.
Obviously a low priority, but it makes it so that one has to understand how to compile FFTW from scratch (not a trivial task for idiots like me) or use the slower included fourier transform code (in which case gromacs compiles just fine with visual studio). Might be worth addressing this presumably minor issue in the next update.

Disable automated FFTW3 builds on Windows
The FFTW distribution does not include configurations to
build it automatically on windows, in particular not through
the ./configure; make; make install triad.
