Esp-idf compile no CMAKE_C_COMPILER

I’ve installed esp-idf and I’m trying to compile example build_system/cmake/idf_as_lib
and I got the error in the ESP-IDF CMD which not allow me to compile that example. The same problem is in Visual Studio Code.

Probably I should set environment path CMAKE_C_COMPILER but I don’t know what should I point.
I’ve installed CMAKE on my windows

My actual environment paths:
IDF_PYTHON_ENV_PATH → C:\esp\tools.espressif\python_env\idf4.4_py3.8_env\Scripts\python.exe
IDF_TOOLS_PATH → C:\esp\tools.espressif
IDF_PATH → C:\esp\esp-idf

-- The C compiler identification is unknown
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:3 (project):
  No CMAKE_C_COMPILER could be found.

  Tell CMake where to find the compiler by setting either the environment
  variable "CC" or the CMake cache entry CMAKE_C_COMPILER to the full path to
  the compiler, or to the compiler name if it is in the PATH.
