thanks making this possible :)

tested with Qt 5.13.0 Alpha, Windows 10 pro and MSVC2017-64 binary
now BT LE devices are detected without pairing :)

can explore all services and characteristics
connect is working
read from / write to works well
notify: on some devices not working
disconnect: never working
