This does not work when I call the qmake on the top level. Funnily it works fine though, when calling qmake && nmake install on the level of the problematic .pro file. I used google and got some results that tell something about problems with the subdirs template and INSTALLS. But I didn't find a solution. Do you know of this problem and what is going wrong? Have you any suggestions?

You should provide a link to (a paste of) the actual project (or, even 
better, the most reduced version of it that still exhibits the problem). 
Otherwise people can only guess what's going wrong.
