      Description

      Tested msvc2013. The linker can not find _imp_CommandLineToArgvW@8. It's in shell32.lib. I see qtmain.lib use the function CommandLineToArgvW, and winmain.pro add -lshell32 flag. But qtmain.lib is a static lib, so that flag does nothing i think. I change a line in mkspecs/win32-msvc2013/qmake.conf

      QMAKE_LIBS_QT_ENTRY = -lqtmain

      to

      QMAKE_LIBS_QT_ENTRY = -lqtmain -lshell32

      and it works
