Thanks for the info. I more or less got things setup with the exception that I need to install the standalone debugger from the SDK. Tried the web installer from MS but that just gave some errors. Anyways, I am on my way. Thanks again.

My project is managed with CMake instead of QMake and I was curious if anyone else is using this combination and could give some pointers on how to setup the environment to use QtCreator in this way? What generator do I use? What kind of env vars need to be setup ahead of time. Stuff like that.
