Thiago, thanks /so much/ for this clarity.  Absolutely.  We will be 
upgrading to VS 2015 soon after our upcoming major release.  (Using VS 
2010 at this point is, decidedly, nuts).  (So was taking until now to 
finish our upgrade from Qt 4.8 to Qt 5-anything).

I had noticed a note in Qt 5.7 indicating that VS 2012 or later is 
required.  But no such note appeared with Qt 5.6.2.  (That's building as 
we speak).  It's encouraging to hear that you believe that 5.6.2 should 
work (with VS 2010 SP1).  (I think I'm understanding that correctly).
