Understood. First make sure that the various tools are available on your path.
In my environment I have:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]

Next, if you've installed any tools in "C:\Program Files\..." then you may 
have issues with the spaces in the path name. This trips up cmake's
FindXXX functions which *should* work but they don't. Note that
my ruby, python, cgywin, and perl are installed so that there's no
spaces in the path to their bin directories.

With these settings I would expect the basic qpid/cpp cmake to
generate a usable qpid-cpp.sln solution.
Building the .NET bindings limits your choice of version of 
Visual Studio. For .NET 2.0 you must use Visual Studio 2008 and
for .NET 4.0 you must use Visual Studio 2010. The reasoning
behind this restriction is that cmake does not generate .NET
solutions and projects. The .NET solutions and projects are hard
coded into the source checkout. The demand to upgrade to VS 2012
or VS 2013 is growing slowly so support for them may be added
over the next year. We accept contributed solutions to problems
like this!

Note that nant is not an answer to the .NET binding solutions and
projects because the binding is a /CLR interop layer between
the user's .NET managed code and the underlying qpid unmanaged code.

Do you have boost? You'll need a boost that supports the C++
compiler (Visual Studio C++ runtime) version, architecture (32- or
64-bit), and debug or release.

Please see http://people.apache.org/~chug/boost-win-1.47/ for some
boost versions that work with qpid and .NET.

Do you need AMQP 1.0? If so then you need yet another layer of
software provided by http://qpid.apache.org/proton/index.html

Qpid cmake does not have a FindProton that works on windows and 
the process is to cmake/make/install proton into an install 
directory that is shared by qpid.

I have a pair of command procedures that I use all the time to build
a shared proton/qpid pair. http://people.apache.org/~chug/proton-win/

By having qpid use the same install directory of an installed proton
the qpid build finds proton and compiles support for AMQP 1.0.

Hopefully this gets you started.
