"building platform sdk samples works correctly."
What does it mean?
Opening pre-prepared project file with VS is OK?

With the GUI version you may chose the 'Generator'
with cmake command line use -G <generator-name>

launch cmake cmd line for a list of supported Generators.

I'm using CMake to generate MS Visual Studio .NET 2003 successfully.
nevertheles the same CMake enabled project failed at generating
nmake Makefiles, thus my initial question.

Lay be you should check what generator you try to use,
even if I doubt you trouble is regarding generator since
cmake seems to fail on SYSTEM Check.
