Thanks for all the help everyone!

One thing I did notice was message($$PWD) worked fine on on one platform but not on windows.

I got a message like:
    message() requires one argument

I was using:

But Qt is now borke (computer locked not Qt's fault) and I'll re-install it:
    Could not find the platform plugin "windows" in ""

But now message($$LIBS) works, so I have no idea what is real anymore.
