WINDOWS_EXPORT_ALL_SYMBOLS

This property is implemented only for MS-compatible tools on Windows.

Enable this boolean property to automatically create a module definition (.def) file with all global symbols found in the input .obj files for a SHARED library (or executable with :prop_tgt:ENABLE_EXPORTS) on Windows. The module definition file will be passed to the linker causing all symbols to be exported from the .dll. For global data symbols, __declspec(dllimport) must still be used when compiling against the code in the .dll. All other function symbols will be automatically exported and imported by callers. This simplifies porting projects to Windows by reducing the need for explicit dllexport markup, even in C++ classes.

This property is initialized by the value of the CMAKE_WINDOWS_EXPORT_ALL_SYMBOLS variable if it is set when a target is created.
