I have followed all of MS advice on installing both VS2010 and the Windows SDK 7.1. The final issue I am facing (I think) is actually finding the "cdb.exe" file. It is not where the docs say it should be. which is

For the older Windows SDKs, such as Windows SDK 7.1, the Debugging Tools for Windows where shipped as a separate installer on the ISO-image of the SDKs. The debuggers are typically located in c:\Program Files (x86)\Debugging Tools for Windows or c:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows .

I do not have any of those paths. Do you? What is the path to the cdb.exe that you are using?

My project is managed with CMake instead of QMake and I was curious if anyone else is using this combination and could give some pointers on how to setup the environment to use QtCreator in this way? What generator do I use? What kind of env vars need to be setup ahead of time. Stuff like that.
