CMake is a family of tools designed to build, test and package software. CMake is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files. CMake generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of your choice.

To install CMake, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install cmake --version 3.1.3

To upgrade CMake, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade cmake --version 3.1.3

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.


This package has no dependencies.

Release Notes

On behalf of the Kitware team and global CMake community, we are pleased to announce the release of CMake 2.8.9. There are several significant developments and enhancements with this release, including the new, default-enabled Ninja generator; a position-independent code target property, and MUMPS coverage support in CTest.

The Ninja generator is a replacement for Make, and uses all cores in a machine to enable faster builds by maximizing the ability to parallelize the build code. This is now enabled by default on Linux, Mac, and Windows. To see how this is leveraged for a dashboard machine, you can look at our CMake dashboard scripts.

The position-independent code target property automatically adds -fPIC and -fPIE compiler flags for compilers that require it when building static libraries, which makes it easy to avoid adding platform specifics to your CMakeLists.

Lastly, the MUMPS programming language now has coverage tools, with added support in CTest to include GTM and Cache. This is already in use by the OSEHRA community.

In addition to the above changes, there were many other improvements that can be seen in the change log. To get involved with CMake, download the latest release on the download page, join the mailing lists, and provide feedback through the bug tracker.
