I used nmake

Graham asked me to hold off until all issues was fixed ad as LUA, GeoIP and Qt was excluded I was in no hurry.

I have no objections, it'll be easier to make sure it continues to work if the changes are committed.

I didn't encounter that problem...

Yes me too and that's also a comment about it in my commit, same for the next point..

I might have a look at it when coming back from vacation if the packager I used last time did not update the library (I have no reliable Internet access right now, yes this is still possible nowadays :)). But I was not in a hurry as there is no Qt package compiled with MSVC2015 yet, so we still have a strong dependency on MSVC2013.


FYI Windows CMake doesn't currently seem to configure without Qt, I'm not too fussed about that as on Windows the Qt version is the main build. 

The QT folks had previously indicated VS2015 support would be released as a 5.5.x release so it's likely not too far off: https://blog.qt.io/blog/2015/04/29/windows-10-support-in-qt/

Enjoying your vacation in the mountains Pascal?
