QtDBus works fine on Windows - at least in 4.8, I don't know about 5.0.

Of course you can't use the binary Qt SDKs as D-Bus is not native to 
Windows. You will have to build D-Bus yourself on Windows and then build 
your own Qt against it. It is straightforward and there are no quirks to 
speak of.
