Summary0009924: VS 10 generator appends Debug/Release to RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY
DescriptionIn my project, I set RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY for my executable to something like '...somepath.../results/win32/${CMAKE_CFG_INTDIR}/bin'. This works as expected for the VS 9 generator: I end up with a .exe in that directory.

However, the VS 10 generator creates a project with $(OutDir) set to '...somepath.../results/win32/Debug/bin/Debug' (or Release for release builds). And the linker output file is set to '$(OutDir)$(TargetName)$(TargetExt)'. So the resulting .exe is not in the location I specified by RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY, but one level below, instead.

Looking at the VS9 generator, it overrides the default Linker>General>Output File setting based on what I set for RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY.

However, the VS10 generator leaves the default value of $(OutDir)$(TargetName)$(TargetExt) in place, and OutDir is set to RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY/Debug.

A better bug title would have been:
VS 10 generator does not obey the RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY property

I can change RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY to something completely outside of my dev tree, and the VS10 generator does not set the appropriate path in Configuration Properties>Linker>General>Output File for EXEs or DLLs.

This is the only bug preventing my project from working with VS 2010 B2.

After some more investigation, I believe this is really a duplicate of [^] Our previous workaround of defining PREFIX and IMPORT_PREFIX doesn't work, so I'm looking into the new per-config target directories introduced here: [^]

Please close this bug.

Closing at the request of the reporter.
