I am new to eclipse for c for windows.

I set up cygwin installed needed stuff for developing in c/c++.

In the console I can compile and run a simple hello world program.

The next step is to create the standard eclipse cmake project with the hello world program.

I can compile and run the program in the console ( with standard cmake configuration).

In eclipse I get an error:
CMake Error: Could not create named generator MinGW Makefiles

The proble is that cmake is called with the options:
cmake -G MinGW Makefiles -DCMAKE_EXPORT_COMPILE_COMMANDS=ON C:\Users\xxx\eclipse-workspace\cmake_test

I would like to remove -G MinGW Makefiles from the cmake call but I searched for hours and cannot find where to configure this stuff.

Thx for your help.
