Hi,

I was wondering how to add an (oldschool) win32 *.rc file via CMake.
ADD_EXECUTABLE(... Resource.rc) or ADD_LIBRARY(... Resource.rc) doesn't work, the macros don't recognize the *.rc extension.

Kind Regards,
Daniel Dekkers

My bad...
I can add *.rc files to the ADD_LIBRARY() or ADD_EXECUTABLE() macro's.
They don't show up in the Visual Studio Solution Explorer though...

if using visual studio you could add the rc file to the Solution Explorer directly. then the default tool used for build would be the 'Resource Compiler Tool' rc.exe what automatically was set in the build properties.

if you want to use the rc.exe in the make utility, you easilly can see the syntax by typing

   rc /?

in a command window.
