Thank You! Not a silly question. Actually, I upgraded my version of VS from 2012 to 2013 to go with Qt for MSVC2013. Otherwise, I wouldn't even be able to compile pure C++ with Qt, which I have had no problem doing. I just can't seem to create even a pure C++ library in VS OR Qt, and have Qt recognize it. That will be my challenge in the next days, and is understandably slightly off-topic for this thread. But I will definitely report back. Thanks to all!
