Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit

Install CMake* to Build Samples

CMake is
not required by the oneAPI tools and toolkits, many oneAPI samples are provided as CMake projects and require CMake to build them.
For Microsoft Windows*, the Visual Studio* C++ Development tools must be installed, including the CMake tools in the Desktop development with C++ workload. Installing the Linux Development with C++ workload will not provide the necessary tools to run all samples. Use the links below to install Visual Studio and CMake.
If you already installed an
Intel® oneAPI
toolkit before installing Visual Studio, the oneAPI plug-ins for Visual Studio will be absent. If this happens, install Visual Studio and CMake using the links below. Then refer to the Troubleshooting section for instructions on how to fix the plug-ins.
Visual C++ Tools for CMake is installed by default as part of the
Desktop Development with C++ workload
