[Paraview] Still getting error building Paraview 2.4.4 with MSVC 8.0

I found some changes to cmake mentioned here in the mailing list, so I
downloaded CMake 2.4.6

And tried to use it to build Paraview 2.4.4.  Now I get the "Error spawning
cmd.exe" message during cmake configure!


I wasn't able to find the testCompiler.c, and the location it lists for the
BuildLog.htm is also empty. 


Any clues?
