That's because windows.h defines "min" and "max" as a macro. That behaviour can 
be turned off by defining NOMINMAX before including windows.h.

The thing is, we do it in qt_windows.h.

So the question is why that didn't work for you. Is it because:

a) windows.h was included before NOMINMAX was defined in qt_windows.h?
b) your windows.h does not respect NOMINMAX
c) "min" and "max" were defined elsewhere
