I said:  As far I know... CMake is not designed to generate ...  But it can.

Further as far I know :), but I can be wrong.

CMake is not designed to generate dsw/dsp files that can be edited from
Visual Studio. It should not be used to initialize a project and then
dropped.  The CMakeLists.txt files control the project.  Any changes that
are made to the .dsp files will not be reflected in the MakeLists.txt files.
The .dsp files should not be removed or modified by anything but CMake.

You came up with the dropping idea;  Question for me is: what is the issue
with dsw/dsp ?

Please read the whole thread. cmake can generate dsp and vc(x)proj files
for all versions of Visual Studio.
