I dont even build my application initially with Visual Studio,
I create a folder, get my source files and header files (made seperately in VS2010) and create a .pro file... which I run the "qmake" command on...
This creates a .vcproj file comprizing all the source & header files I specified in the .pro file, which I then open and just hit 'F7' to get the sollution and other files,
Thus my .dll is not in the Visual Studio folder at all nor my QT libraries (separate installation)
this was achieved by installing QT and adding it to environmental variables, mixing it with windows in a sense
