cmake looks for a certain file called Automoc4Config.cmake, not for
the executable directly.
On my linux system this is in /usr/lib/automoc4/Automoc4Config.cmake,
with automoc4 being in /usr/bin. I guess that all you need to do is to
put "d:/entwicklung/tools/automoc/install/" in your CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
in the command line above, instead of just
"d:/entwicklung/tools/automoc", and assuming that Automoc4Config.cmake
is in d:/entwicklung/tools/automoc/install/lib/automoc4/, it should
find it.
