/MT option for MSVC breaks build with older CMake version

Reported by: ksuehring Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: VTM-3.0
Component: VTM Version: VTM-2.2
Keywords: Cc: ksuehring, XiangLi, fbossen, jvet@…



the compile option /MT is enforced for all MS Visual Studio builds, which results in linking of a static release runtime, in both debug and release mode.

While it is already generally undesirable to link a release runtime in debug mode, it also breaks building in debug mode when using older CMake versions, e.g. CMake 3.7.x

Without that option, CMake selects /MD in release mode for mutithreaded release DLL build and /MDd for mutithreaded debug DLL in debug build.
