I always was building QT from source code (to be able to step through QT code when debugging), but for some reason it's broken now in QT5. Is there any reason visual studio project files aren't generated anymore? How can I get it to build using normal VS environment?
You should go with the standard way of using command line: configure, make (that's nmake or jom in your case) and optionally make install. I don't know if building with VS is at all tested. Qt5 has several additional steps in it's build (using Perl, Python and even Ruby), so maybe that is the cause.
