Error Building OpenCV from Source

I've been trying for some time now to build OpenCV on Windows without much success. My main goal in building from source is to have Qt support, but I also want to use IPP and CUDA to make my code run as fast as possible. Thus far I've installed CMake, Visual Studio, Intel IPP, Intel TBB, Anaconda Python, Qt, Eigen, CUDA Toolkit, MikTeX, and finally OpenCV. I run the configuration process to generate the Visual Studio solution, and I can open that solution in VS and it parses all the input files. However, when I build I get a bunch of errors that say, "The project '<name here="">' has been modified outside the environment." The output reports Build: 12 succeeded, 81 failed, 0 up-to-date, 35 skipped.

I've documented my installation step-by-step with screenshots, including screenshots of the build errors, and saved this to a PDF file. The verbose output from the build process has been captured in a plain text file. I've uploaded these files to Dropbox due to size and the documentation can be found here.

Can someone steer me in the right direction?
