[vtkusers] Activiz 6.2 with VTK-6.2 and .NET 4.0 Build Success

I have uploaded some notes and the cmake cache files to:
 What's left?  Well the biggest thing would be fixing gccxml.  But a stop 
gap measure might be to change the build a little bit so that once the 
export layer has been generated with mummy, the second build pass is done 
with a different compiler.  This would get rid of the MSCRT9.0 dependency 
which I see as the biggest issue right now.  You have this extra runtime 
getting linked in, which is doing nothing but reference management between 
VTK and .NET.  This is just plain old goofy.
 Anyway good luck,

 Nothing will make it build in VS2013.  Because of gccxml, you have to have 
VS2008 to do the build.
   I started to work on patching gccxml, but that was kind of a nightmare 
I'll leave to someone with more time.
   I am not a C++ template guru.
   But, the changes I've made build the binaries targeting .NET 4.0 instead 
of .NET 2.0. 
   Here is the link to the Source download directory.  I'm uploading it 
right now, so it will be a little bit.

   Hi Mark,    
   Can you send me the patched source directories. I want to make use of  
activiz 6.2 for vtk 6.2  with vs2013?

 VTK-6.2 built with Intel C++ 14.0
 Activiz 6.2 built with .NET 4.0
 Mummy 1.0.3 built with .NET 4.0
 If anyone else is having trouble getting this working, feel free to get in 
contact with me, I can send you my patched source directories.  This is my 
first experience with CMake, and I've got to say it sure made things a 
 The only thing which drove me nuts was the number of times a full rebuild 
got triggered after patching individual source files.  I wish the 
maintainers would remove the gccxml/mummy generate functions from the 
configure step, and just make it another build step.
  I hope I can get more involved with the project but I've got a lot of 
learning to do before I'd feel comfortable in CMake.
