For compatibility with CMake versions prior to 3.0, one may specify this
generator using the name "Visual Studio 11" without the year component.

Project Types

Only Visual C++ and C# projects may be generated.  Other types of
projects (JavaScript, Database, Website, etc.) are not supported.

Platform Selection
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

18 19
The default target platform name (architecture) is ``Win32``.

20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28
The :variable:`CMAKE_GENERATOR_PLATFORM` variable may be set, perhaps
via the :manual:`cmake(1)` ``-A`` option, to specify a target platform
name (architecture).  For example:

* ``cmake -G "Visual Studio 11 2012" -A Win32``
* ``cmake -G "Visual Studio 11 2012" -A x64``
* ``cmake -G "Visual Studio 11 2012" -A ARM``
* ``cmake -G "Visual Studio 11 2012" -A <WinCE-SDK>``
  (Specify a target platform matching a Windows CE SDK name.)
