You can use the cpp.windresPath property -- however, don't do this. Qbs already internally prepends the toolchain prefix to the windres binary name. What you *should* do is set the toolchain prefix, like so:

qbs-config profiles.myprofile32.cpp.toolchainPrefix: "i686-w32-mingw32"
qbs-config profiles.myprofile64.cpp.toolchainPrefix: "x86_64-w64-mingw32"

qbs-setup-toolchains SHOULD already do all this automatically for you (in fact I specifically implemented it to work with the MinGW cross compilers out of the box), so I'm curious why it hasn't. Can you please provide us with your profile setup (qbs-config --list) and what version of Qbs you are using so we can fix the issue if there is indeed one?
