Qt Plugins: :-1: error: cannot find -lpnp_basictools
I have been trying for days now to use third party libraries in my simple Qt projects, but to no success so far.
I have tried the Plug & Paint Example and the Plug & Paint Basic Tools Example. The tools/plugandpaint/plugins/basictools/basictools.pro compiles OK, but the tools/plugandpaint/app/app.pro fails to compile:
:-1: error: cannot find -lpnp_basictools
collect2.exe:-1: error: error: ld returned 1 exit status
I have practically copy-pasted the sources from the website to my computer. What could I be missing.
Qt Creator 3.6.0
Based on Qt 5.5.1 (MSVC 2013, 32 bit)

What could I be missing.
The library path to the pnp_basictools.lib
You need to show your pro file.
