When you say msys2, do you mean that’s the compiler/kit you’re using?

I’m using visual studio 2013 (12.0), or trying to.

It’s enabled by default.

I’ve tried the offline installer for Qt 5.5.0, which installs QtC 3.4.2 and the online installer which installs QtC 3.5.0.  3.4.2 doesn’t even show main.cpp when generating a Qbs “c++ program” using the wizard.  3.5.0 parses that far, but again, doesn’t have the compilers setup so it can’t do anything.

Super frustrating.  I’ll have to go back to qmake and maybe work on getting Qbs to work in the background sometime.  It’s totally broken out of the box.  Sadness.
