Select the MSVC runtime library for use by compilers targeting the MSVC ABI.
This variable is used to initialize the :prop_tgt:`MSVC_RUNTIME_LIBRARY`
property on all targets as they are created. It is also propagated by
calls to the :command:`try_compile` command into the test project.
The allowed values are:
.. include:: ../prop_tgt/MSVC_RUNTIME_LIBRARY-VALUES.txt
Use :manual:`generator expressions <cmake-generator-expressions(7)>` to
support per-configuration specification. For example, the code:
.. code-block:: cmake
set(CMAKE_MSVC_RUNTIME_LIBRARY "MultiThreaded$<$<CONFIG:Debug>:Debug>")
selects for all following targets a multi-threaded statically-linked runtime
library with or without debug information depending on the configuration.
.. note::
This variable has effect only when policy :policy:`CMP0091` is set to ``NEW``
prior to the first :command:`project` or :command:`enable_language` command
that enables a language using a compiler targeting the MSVC ABI.
