[QBS] Qbs not working in Creator on Win7

Hi, thanks for the suggestions below.


It turns out that I very recently installed cmake and somehow got its bin directory added to my path enclosed in double quotes.  vcvars.bat was failing because of this, which of course is bad in many ways.

Removed the double quotes and all is well!

Thanks again for the help, everyone.
