The following generators are available on this platform:
   Visual Studio 6             = Generates Visual Studio 6 project files.
   Visual Studio 7             = Generates Visual Studio .NET 2002 project
   Visual Studio 10            = Generates Visual Studio 10 project files.
   Visual Studio 11            = Generates Visual Studio 11 project files.
   Visual Studio 7 .NET 2003   = Generates Visual Studio .NET 2003 project
   Visual Studio 8 2005        = Generates Visual Studio 8 2005 project 
   Visual Studio 9 2008        = Generates Visual Studio 9 2008 project

Do you have both versions of the compiler on your platform?

Also, this does not seem to be a CMake issue.  Can you build a simple 
hello world VS project right from the IDE?

You can also run cmake with --debug-trycompile.  This will leave the VS 
project CMake is trying to build in the CMakeFiles/CMakeTmp directory. 
Then you can load that project and try to build it with the IDE.
