Yep. A couple of times. After uninstalling/reinstalling VS2010 & Windows SDK & plus VS2010SP1 & Windows SDK SP1 Update the debugger never was installed. I finally tried downloading the "Windows 8 SDK" which runs on Windows 7x64 (which is what I am on) and that seemed to install the debuggers. Now my "Kit" automatically picked up those debuggers. Now lets see if I can actually debug my project.
How is the speed of the debugger compared to Visual Studio? Also does this mean that I could install JUST the Windows SDK (compilers/debuggers) and QtCreator and have a full up "FREE" (as in NO MONEY) IDE that uses the VS compilers? This would make me happy.

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.
