Priority: P1: Critical

Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Packaging & Installer
Environment:Windows 10 / VC 2015
All these past years, I could always build Qt <= 5.5 from the Tarball (adding gitignore to be able to generate configure.exe)
But for 5.6 RC, after many attempts, I still can't build fully. More precisely, QtBase builds fine, but not the other modules. I am not speaking about compiler errors, but about include file problems.
I tried a prefix build, without more success. Even the exact documented way http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/windows-building.html fails.
Apart the tarball commercial package, I tried the open-source package, and the ZIP package, without success.
And finally, to make sure, I have rebuilt 5.5.1 without any problem on the same machine...
So please just try this:
get the (commercial) tarball qt-everywhere-enterprise-src-5.6.0-rc.tar
and try building on Windows (following some standard procedure eg. http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/windows-building.html).
