It's caused by calling qmake from a command prompt that doesn't have 
uuidgen in the PATH. This happens if you use the default Windows 
commmand prompt, for example.

What version of Qt are you using? It should abort early in 5.5 if 
uuidgen is not found.

The fix is to delete the .qmake.cache file in your build directory and 
then regenerate the project from the correct command prompt (Visual 
Studio 2013 x86 Native Tools).
