Dear All:

  Sorry for unclear description of my problem.

  Yes, The CMake 2.4 hung couples times and did not finish when I used it 
 to configure vtk 5.0.1.

  The environment on my computer: Windows XP, VC++ 6.0, VTK 5.0.1 and CMake

  The main steps which I followed (same as when installing vtk 5.0.0) are
 listed as given below:
 1. download installer for win32 (vtk-5.0.1-win32.exe),
 source(vtk-5.0.1.zip), data(vtkdata-5.0.1.zip);
 2. Run and install vtk-5.0.1-win32.exe into C:\vtk5.0
 3. Unzip source archieve into C:\vtk5.0\vtk-5.0.1
 4. Unzip data archieve into C:\vtk5.0\vtkdata-5.0.1
 5. run CMake 2.4, and set the source code path: C:\vtk5.0\vtk-5.0.1, and
 the path for build the binaries: C:\vtk5.0\bin
 6. For cache values: set BUILD_EXAMPLES: on, BUILD_SHARED_LIBS: on,
 CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX: C:\vtk5.0, VTK_DATA_ROOT: C:\vtk5.0\vtkdata-5.0.1
 7. leave all others as they are

  The CMake error appeared as: Erroe adding durle for c:/VTK5.0/vtk-5.0.1/CMakelists.txt after configuration procedure,  if  I
 press cancel to suppress any further messages, then building ALL_BUILD_classes using VC++ 6.0 would fail . The
 vtkWin32OutputWindowProcessEncoded.c generated some link errors with error LNK 2001: unresolved external symbol.

  Sometimes, the configure procedure stops at different locations, for example: checking support for c++ explicit template instantiation.

  The  CMakeCache.txt  is attached for your reference.
