Getting CMake error?

Why am I getting this CMake error? Was able to build on the 3rd ,but when trying today I get this.

Delete my build folder and try.

CMake Error at build_files/cmake/platform/platform_win32_bundle_crt.cmake:29 (file):
  file does not recognize sub-command TOUCH

This in the old build folder.

I’ll see what i can do about not using touch, but for now an updated cmake should fix the issue for you.

Updating CMake worked.

Just seconding that I hit the same thing, windows 10 VS2017. I was on cmake 3.8, bumping to latest, 3.16, fixed it for me. Just running the make.bat in the root folder.

I have a patch in the system that removes the use of touch but it hasn’t made it through review just yet.
