Cannot find CMake 3.5

description

When running the Help or GUI, I get the following error:

CMake could not be found on your computer. Please ensure that it is properly installed.

I have CMake 3.5 installed in the standard folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\CMake). Any ideas what's going on?

I did some research and the latest version I could get the Help and GUI to work is CMake 3.2.3. Any version above that gives the error. Hope this helps!

You need to specify "Path to CMake" in the CMake Options, then symlink/rename/copy CMake\doc\cmake to CMake\doc\cmake-3.5.

This should also be fixed properly, of course. :)

CMake 3.6 doesn't ship with documentation for some reason. I've attached a build of the HTML manual to this comment. Just extract it to CMake\doc.
