Did you receive any error messages while running CMake?  The above error 
often indicates that some CMake configuration tests have failed.

There is a problem with building on FAT32 filesystems using Visual 
Studio 8, which can cause some tests to randomly fail.  Have a look at 
the CMake bug tracker for more information:

If your VTK build directory actually resides on a FAT32 partition, the 
easiest thing to try is to put it onto a NTFS partition instead.
