Qt VS Add-in for VS2012?

  • Hi,

    I just installed Windows 8 Pro on my primary programming machine, and decided to give VS2012 a go. I love it. It's so much better than VS2010 (in my opinion). I had to build Qt from source using some modifications, but it all worked out. I then migrated a project on which I was working in VS2010. It had been set to look for Qt in C:\Qt\4.8.3, so I renamed the folder in which I'd build Qt and put it in C:\ and it worked as soon as I set the target machine to x64 since I'd compiled using a x64 command prompt.

    From what I've experienced thus far, the add-in is not entirely necessary, but it would be nice to know how it works as well as exactly what it does, since the current version does not seem to support VS2012 at all.

    I plan on creating new Qt projects soon, so I'd like to know how to do manually what the add-in does automatically. Also, if there's an ETA on a VS add-in supporting VS2012, that'd be nice to know as well.
