Which version of Qt to use for Window 7 64-bit and VS2010?
My development PC has Window 7 64-bit. I am also using MS VS2010 because I will need to interface to a DLL written by other team members in C++ and compiled using VS2010. I can compile the DLL as either 64-bit or 32-bit (release or debug). I don't care if my Qt program compiles to be a 32-bit or 64-bit executable. The combination Windows 7 64-bit with VS2010 isn't among the precompiled version I can download from the Qt-project download page. Which version of Qt should I download? Hopefully I won't have to re-build Qt from the source files. By the way, I also will be using the Qwt controls and plots. It looks like I will need to build that package from its source files.

Compiling yourself is not a hard job, in fact. Once you gain some experience in Qt (or if you already have it), I recommend it - it's more flexible and gives some understanding to how Qt works. Could be painful on Windows, though.
