How install QT for MSVC?
Its possible install QT and "MSVC compiler" without the "Microsoft IDE"?
I downloaded "Qt 5.4.0 for Windows 32-bit" (VS 2013, OpenGL, 694 MB), I need install MSVC2013? If "yes", its possible install MSVC without IDE (install only "compiler")? Or download only the "compiler"?
I'm sure there is a way but the easiest way for me was to install MS Visual Studio (Community & Express) for Windows Desktop.
Sometimes it is a bit confusing because there are a million different download options and sites from Microsoft for this. But just yesterday, I got it to work with Qt 5.4, Win 8.1, 64 BIt.
On a side note: I can't get Qt 5.4 to work with Windows 7, 32 bit (on an older laptop). Did anyone get this to work?
If you are not stuck on the M$ compiler the MinGW compiler I think has a smaller footprint and seems to work well.
My client requires the M$ compiler so I had to install the full VS. Not sure there is a way to install the compiler only. I could be wrong through.

From MSVC 2012 onwards, you need to install the full package (including the IDE).
but i don't know if it is producing binaries which are compatible with Qt releases. I don't think so...

I can see two potential issues though:
This is only a preview release.
The system requirements says "This package requires VIsual Studio 2013 to be pre-installed on the machine"
Your comments are right. I need VS2013 installed.
